Black history month is that special time of year we acknowledge the contributions African Americans have made to The United States in spite of the horrific abuse we suffered at the hands of our fellow countrymen and women.

Here are some fun and challenging black history questions and answers to celebrate the achievements and contributions of black Americans. Since great men like Malcolm X and Martin Luther King already get a ton of well-deserved press, I made this quiz to highlight some of my lesser known heroes.
