We at NewsOne wanted to provide our audience with something fresh and original for our Black History Month campaign. We decided to look back in the last ten years and take the five biggest Black stories from each and create a timeline.

Everything from Aaliyah’s death, the “Jena Six” protests, Barack Obama’s election, Michael Jackson’s death, and the tragedy that was Hurricane Katrina to name a few.

We hope you enjoy this timeline and encourage you to mention any events you believe we may have missed.

The events were compiled by NewsOne contributor, Bakari Kitwana, Managing Editor Dan Charnas, and Editor Claudio E. Cabrera.
