Community, Nonprofits and Businesses sharing Information
Throughout the month of February 2014, OneWorld will post various information in honor of black people who have made various contributions and inspired many. Of course, we will only scratch the surface; however, we hope to shine a light on some that might not be as well known.
We will list our post in reverse order with the latest listed first.
