Every year for Black History Month, Judge Derek Mosley posts daily tributes on Facebook during the month of February that provide information about remarkable African-Americans who were excluded from mainstream history books.

OnMilwaukee has shared these posts for a couple of years and recently, were inspired to start a companion series to document local African-Americans who – from at least one generation ago – moved Milwaukee forward.

For the month of February, we are collecting photos and stories of YOUR family members – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, cousins. Maybe your grandfather worked at a Milwaukee-based hospital or factory or your cousin owned a local business or your aunt ran a neighborhood organization. We want to hear about some of the unknown African-American Milwaukee movers and shakers who never made it into our history books. No story is “too small.”
