The Strong Dominoes is a series of short biographies meant to shed light on Black Americans who have used strength, resilience and brilliance as a means to make progress despite systematic racism, discrimination and personal challenges.

The series celebrates contributions made by Black Americans to the culture and history of the United States. These contributions have not only shaped American history but have made an impact globally.

Each of these figures faced challenges, solved problems, led movements that changed the perspective on how we see the world and how we treat each other. They’ve used their special and unique talents to contribute to some of the most memorable and important moments in history.
