Black History Month is celebrated every February as a time to recognize and honor African-Americans who made great contributions to some aspect of life in this country. Major figures like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks are often honored, but many lesser-known men and women made impacts on society by working through the channels of academia, breaking barriers for future African-Americans and creating opportunities for others. This month, Franklin University pays tribute to some of these lesser known academic honorees, as well as recognize a few of its own.

We continue our tribute with today's honorees: Hallie Quinn Brown and Dr. JoAnna Williamson

Brown earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Wilberforce University in Ohio and represented the United States at the International Congress of Women in London in 1899. She also directed campaign work among African American women for President Calvin Coolidge.

We continue our tribute with today's honorees: Booker T. Washington and Dr. Andy Igonor

In 1881, he founded the Tuskegee Institute, a black school in Alabama devoted to training teachers. Washington was also behind the formation of the National Negro Business League 20 years later, and he served as an adviser to Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. Although Washington clashed with other black leaders such as W. E. B. Du Bois and drew ire for his seeming acceptance of segregation, he is recognized for his educational advancements and attempts to promote economic self-reliance among African Americans.

Dr. Andy Igonor: Dr. Andy Igonor serves as Dean of the Franklin University Ross College of Business (RCOB).
