Doctors, scientists, authors, athletes, business leaders, entertainers… the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant has been home to some of the most notable figures in African-American history.
Here’s a list of the history makers profiled this month:
Ernesta G. Procope
Big Daddy Kane
Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace
Dr. Susan Smith Mckinney-Steward
And still, there are more (we simply could not fit everyone in 28 days)!
Eugene T. Reed
Fab 5 Freddy
Ronald K. Brown
We hope you have enjoyed this month's series and even learned a little history.
Rest assured that the pulse of the neighborhood, the spirit of the people and its rich history and beauty will continue to birth (and attract) more trailblazers who proudly call Bedford-Stuyvesant “home.”
