Black History Month: Texans making history right now
Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks made history, and inspired a generation of leaders to keep making history today.
All February we've been pursuing a project to celebrate African American leaders who are tirelessly working to build a better future in Texas.
Our collaborative Black History Month project became a series of portraits of some of the most influential activists in Texas who are making history daily through their work - alongside a quote of their making.
Be sure to click the organizational links under each person's name to learn more about the work. You can also view these portraits on Instagram.
