As you reflect on Black history, who are some of the influencers past or present that stand out to you? Many will say Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., President Barack Obama, Former First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and the list goes on. In Dr. Ricks' most recent article in Prince William Living Magazine, she highlights a few of the past influencers of Black history and their impact on the advancement of Black people.
