Martin Luther King Jr. improvised the most iconic part of his “I Have a Dream Speech.”

Inoculation was introduced to America by a slave.

The earliest recorded protest against slavery was by the Quakers in 1688.

Of the 12.5 million Africans shipped to the New World during the Transatlantic Slave Trade, fewer than 388,000 arrived in the United States.

One in four cowboys was Black, despite the stories told in popular books and movies.

Before he was a blockbuster actor, Will Smith was The Fresh Prince and, along with partner Jazzy Jeff, won the first-ever Grammy for Best Rap Performance. They boycotted the awards because the category was barred from television.

Maya Angelou stopped celebrating her birthday for many years following the assassination of her friend, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the same day. She annually sent flowers to Mrs. King to commemorate that day.

Interracial marriage in the United States was banned in 1664 and not overturned until 1967.
