    With $1.50 in his pocket, two changes of clothes and one dream, this is Hank Aaron leaving Mobile to join the Indy Clowns in 1952! He was 18. Today, "Hammerin' Hank" celebrates his 82nd birthday.

    Did you know Arkansas has its own "hidden figure" story? It belongs to the determined, confident Raye Montague. This is her story.

    Gordon Alexander McHenry became the first African American engineer hired by the Boeing Company in Seattle, Washington. He was later promoted to Boeing Executive management (1955). Prior to 1943 Boeing labor unions had hindered the

    hiring of African American engineers. During his forty-year career with Boeing, McHenry advanced from a supervisor to a member of several engineering management teams. McHenry was part of the Boeing workforce that viewed itself as focused on preserving

    the national security and defense of the United States. As part of that team he contributed his engineering and managerial talents to the development of the B-17, B-29, B-47 and B-52 bombers; the C-97/377 Stratocruiser transport; the BOMARC interceptor

    missile, as well as the Minuteman and MX Peacekeeping Missile Systems.

    Lena Baker, an African American mother of three, was electrocuted at the Georgia State Prison in Reidsyille. She was convicted for the fatal shooting of E. B. Knight, a white Cuthbert, GA mill operator she was hired to care for after he broke his leg. She was 44 and the only woman ever executed in Georgia’s electric chair.

    This University Is The First HBCU To Win CheerSport Nationals



    According to WJCL News, SSU’s Tigers Cheerleading Squad weren’t the first cheerleading team to bring this award to Savannah State, they made history as the first Historically Black College and University to ever accomplish such an achievement.

    "We have a lot of great members on this squad and a great program," Morgan Moore, SSU Sr. Cheerleader, told the reporter. "We just wanted to make sure to better it, improve it and make it the best we can, it's just a great achievement for our squad and our school."

    "We're all very proud," Dathan Gooden, SSU Sr. Cheerleader, admitted. "We wanted to bring this home because no one ever really saw us accomplish anything like that before or really know what we're about, so just wanted to bring it home."

    Congratulations to the Savannah State Tigers Cheerleading Squad on not only being the first HBCU to accomplish such a feat but for making history and memories to last a lifetime.
