So many people missing

Great app for those willing to learn about black history. But please tell me how did Dr. Dre make the list and not Marvin Gaye or Sam Cooke. Did those two not influence and inspire The majority of blacks through their music/message songs. Huey p Newton, Bob Marley, Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko, Michael Jordan, Sidney Potier, Harry Belafonte, James Brown. Did I mention Nelson Mandela? Please add these people, they are so important to this race and Please refrain from putting up rappers and lousy actors.

4/5 stars


It's free people don't complain you can find black history anywhere on the Internet.

3/5 stars

Need more

Last I knew Bob Marley, Nelson Mandela and Steven Biko were not black Americans get it right they were influential people, but not American. Good app, need to add more influences.
