According to CBS, 97 percent of aircraft pilots are white and only about five percent are women. But Stephanie Johnson didn’t let those numbers clip her wings. She was Northwest Airlines' first black female pilot and the first black woman captain for Delta. When she isn’t busy landing planes, she runs the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals' Cleveland ACE Academy, designed to get more folks of color interested in flight. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth


“There’s this whole history that America denies.” Meet LoVina, a member of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe in #Idaho, who sees glaring omissions in school textbooks where Native American history should be. “In my opinion, it was a genocide.” #HerAmerica

Before breaking barriers as the first black woman to create and star in a premium cable series, @issarae was just trying to tell authentic stories about black women's lives. When she started her web series "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl" in 2011, she knew she was filling a void. “For so long, entertainment executives have said the reason they don’t cast people of color is that they’re not relatable onscreen. It’s such a segregationist mentality, and I always knew that it was false,” she says. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence


When American poet and essayist Rita Dove was appointed Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress in 1993, the Pulitzer winner officially became the country’s first black poet laureate. She’s also considered the first activist poet laureate and used her work to amplify the stories of black women like Rosa Parks and Hattie McDaniel. Since Dove's tenure, two more black women have been named poet laureate: Tracy K. Smith and Natasha Trethewey. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence

What’s it like being a woman in a male-dominated industry? Meet Julie—a lobster boat captain in #Maine who has no qualms about speaking her mind. “My husband says I have bigger balls than most of the guys in this harbor.” #HerAmerica


There have only been two African-American Attorneys Generals in the United States. That’s one reason why Loretta Lynch, the first black female Attorney General, left such an important legacy. Lynch saw the power of the law firsthand while watching her grandfather help blacks escape the Jim Crow south. During the 1997 civil rights case of Abner Louima, a Haitian immigrant who was assaulted by police, Lynch led the prosecution. She also worked pro bono for the organization tasked with prosecuting the perpetrators of the Rwandan genocide, which she says was “her most gratifying work.” #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence


On this day in #WomensHistory, Susan B. Anthony was born. She was nicknamed the “Napoleon of the Women’s Rights Movement” for her tireless fight for women’s right to vote. Thanks Susan B. Anthony! #shedidthat


Since 1897, the @librarycongress has been a position only held by white men. That is until 2016 when Carla Hayden became the first woman and black librarian to be sworn in as the nation’s head librarian. Hayden hopes her historic appointment can help turn the page on how we think of librarians. “As a descendant of people who were denied the right to read, to now have the opportunity to serve and lead the institution that is our national symbol of knowledge, is a historic moment,” she explained during her swearing-in speech. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence
