This year I decided I would post, on Instagram, one person a day for black history month. I did this a few years ago and wanted to try it again. I’m not going to lie, it was hard, I didn’t prepare in advance and I learned quickly that you can’t write a novel on Instagram, #Ineedunlimitedcharacters. So picking only one person every day, then editing down their story, thank you Wikipedia, and posting in a timely manner was a bit of a challenge. But I did it and I think people really learned a lot about people they may not have otherwise known about. My strategy was to really bring light to people who’s story may not have been heard or if they were known bringing light to facts that may not have been widely known. Each week I chose an underlining theme: Inventors, Entertainment/Arts, Business and Sports. Here are my favorites from each week.
