African Americans have been a part of Missouri from its territorial days to the present. "Extraordinary Black Missourians: Pioneers, Leaders, Performers, Athletes, and Other Notables Who’ve Made History," by John A. Wright, Sr. and Sylvia A. Wright profiles more than 100 pioneers, educators, civil rights activists, scientists, entertainers, athletes, journalists, authors, soldiers, and attorneys who have lived in the state for part or all of their lives. Icons like Josephine Baker, Lloyd Gaines, Langston Hughes, Annie Malone, Dred Scott, Roy Wilkins set records, made discoveries, received international acclaim and awards, and led in the civil rights movement by breaking down racial barriers. Their accomplishments have played a major role in shaping the history and culture of the state and nation.
