Category: African-American Notables

Categories: US Black Heritage Project | Notables | African-American History

Notables are people who are worthy of note, remarkable, eminent, or persons of distinction. They may be famous, now or in the past. Or they may be less than famous to the general public, but well-known among their own esoteric accomplished peers.

Examples might be people listed in Who's Who, or in encyclopedias. In general, if such a person's names appears in a number of print references or published lists as a leading figure in a field, and especially over a period of time, then they can be considered notable.

Please use this version of the template for the Notables sticker (same sticker, different code) so the person will be placed in this category. {{Notables Sticker|African-American Notables}}
