    Today’s African American influential person is Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Sister Tharpe was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and recording artist. She attained popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with her gospel recordings, characterized by a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and rhythmic accompaniment that was a precursor of rock and roll. She was the first great recording star of gospel music and among the first gospel musicians to appeal to rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll audiences, later being referred to as "the original soul sister" and "the Godmother of rock and roll. Tharpe was a pioneer in her guitar technique; she was among the first popular recording artists to use heavy distortion on her electric guitar, presaging the rise of electric blues. Her guitar playing technique had a profound influence on the development of British blues in the 1960s. On December 13, 2017, Tharpe was chosen for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an Early Influence.

    To celebrate Black History Month today we recognize Bessie Coleman.

    Bessie Coleman was an American aviator and the first black woman to earn a pilot's license. Because flying schools in the United States denied her entry, she taught herself French and moved to France, earning her license from France's well-known Caudron Brother's School of Aviation in just seven months. Coleman specialized in stunt flying and parachuting, earning a living barnstorming and performing aerial tricks. She remains a pioneer of women in the field of aviation.

    Today we will recognize Roger Terry as the African American influential person.

    Roger Terry was one of the Tuskegee Airmen. He served in the US Army Corps in World War II. In 1945 he was stationed at Freeman Field, Indiana, where he was excluded from the “whites only” officers club. Despite the military ordering the desegregation of recreational facilities about two years before the 477th arrived at Freeman Field, Terry and his fellow Tuskegee Airmen and support staff found segregation nonetheless. He was discharged for not obeying orders and later received support from the 477th Air Force to officially remove his letters of reprimand from his permanent file and received full pardon and restoration of rank.

    In 1998, Max Madhere, Pierre Johnson, and Joe Semien were three young, black, premedical students at Xavier University of Louisiana.  Each was struggling with the demands of Xavier's rigorous curriculum, yet each was determined to succeed. By drawing on each other's determination and individual strengths, they forged a brotherhood and created a bond so strong that it would carry them through college, medical school, and well beyond. No obstacle was too great, no ambition too high. Today, Dr. Maxime Madhere, Dr. Pierre Johnson, and Dr. Joseph W. Semien Jr. are each board-certified physicians, as well as fathers and community mentors.

    National African American History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S History.

    Each school day during this month SHMS we will showcase an influential African American who has made an impact in society. Today we will start with Madame C. J. Walker.

    An Entrepreneur and activist, Madam C.J. Walker rose from poverty in the South to become one of the wealthiest African American women of her time. With $1.25, she launched her own line of hair products and straighteners for African American women entitled, “Madam Walker’s Wonderful Hair Grower.” An advocate of black women’s economic independence, she opened training programs in the “Walker System” for her national network of licensed sales agents who earned healthy commissions. Ultimately, Walker employed 40,000 African American women and men in the US, Central America, and the Caribbean.  She also founded the National Negro Cosmetics Manufacturers Association in 1917. We thank Madam C.J Walker for her contributions society.
