In honor of Women’s History Month this March, we’re counting down monumental magazine cover firsts for African American women.

It’s been a long uphill climb for women and an especially burdensome one for black women. The beaten that we’ve often taken blazing our own trails has left our self-esteem and self-images quite battered and bruised. Which is why we have celebrated, and continue to celebrate, those famous black female figures that we do so fiercely. They taught their generations, and all those that followed, that black was, and always will be, beautiful.

In honor of Black History Month, and in preparation of March which is Women’s History Month, I would like to celebrate black women who have inspired me and continue to inspire me to love and do the work of our communities. Women, though probably the hardest workers of any movement, often hear their story told the least. This doesn’t surprise me, we live in a male dominated society. Nevertheless I have chosen to share briefly with you 13 remarkable women who have influenced my life and continue to influence the lives of many all over the world.
