To commemorate Black History month, we’re looking today at the names of some of the less well known Civil Rights leaders and activists. We’re all familiar with the major figures— from Martin Luther King to Jesse Jackson to Rosa Parks–but our subjects here are some activists who played important roles but might not be as well remembered.
And, of course, since we’re also all about the names, we’ve selected those who— along with the better known Stokely Carmichael, Bayard Rustin, Medgar Evers and Thurgood Marshall– have intriguingly unusual appellations. Here, then, some out-of-the-ordinary black history baby names.
It’s just in the nick of time, but we couldn’t let Women’s History Month go by without a salute to some of the adventurous women who have blazed trails, in this case literally reaching new heights. Kudos to the the early lady pilots known then as aviatrixes, many of whom have been hidden too long in the shadow of Amelia Earhart. And of course, Nameberry being Nameberry, our choices were based as much on their interesting names as on their accomplishments.
