Black History Month Extra Credit assignment: Black LGBTQ+ People
Black History Month is a time to celebrate the ways in which Black Americans (who have historically been erased from the dominant narrative of our country) have enhanced and empowered themselves and their people.

Black LGBTQ+ people suffer an additional level of oppression due to their identities, and BHM lacks the stories and voices of the Black LGBTQ+ community.
Your assignment is to do a short, biographical project on a Black LGBTQ+ person and add their names and accomplishments to your knowledge of Black History! You will be assigned a person, and your task is to complete the following:
