Vibrant Lives. Vibrant Stories.
In honor of Black History month, we are launching a new series that focuses on the lives and stories of individuals who made the corridor home. During the month of February we will release a new story every week. Afterwards, this will become a monthly feature. Please feel free to email us suggestions on who we should include next.
Many of the individuals featured this series have not be celebrated as they should. We hope this series inspires you to read more about the lives of these individuals on your own and foster continued scholarship into the lives of Buffalo's vibrant African-American history. If you have any additional information about any of the individuals featured, please share it with us.
