    Malcolm X, The greatest leader we have had in this country.

    Queen Ann Nzinga - The most feared Black woman in history. Maybe the first "true" abolitionist.

    Ida B. Wells Barnett - Very instrumental in the ending of lynching.

    1. MALCOLM X
    2.NAT TURNER
    3.MUHAMMAD ALI



    ( MOST PEEPS AINT UP ON MY MAN NAT TURNER, AND WHAT HIS CONTRIBUTION WAS. BLACK FOLKS NEED TO READ UP ON HIM. THERE'S A REASON WHY WHITE FOLKS HAVE BURIED HIS NAME DEEP UNDER GROUND)

    THAT'S MY "BIG" OPINION.

    1. Bob Marley-because he was uneducated but smarter than many regarding life.
    2. Fela Kuti-because he built the Kalakuta Republic and that's something I can appreciate. Building a place where people can live free from political influence...my dream. He also stood up against everyone that was bringing down Nigeria even though they repeatedly beat him and arrested him. They even killed his mother.
    3. Huey P. Newton-because he had a vision that we all should embrace. He showed us that we can work together.

    Connie Rice (Civil Rights Attorney...Not Condoleeza Rice)
    Angela Davis
    Bobby Seale
    Muhammed Ali
    Dr. Martin Muther King
    Langston Hughes
    Lenny Kravitz
