President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation ultimately ended slavery in America at the end of the Civil War.

Jackie Robinson broke the baseball colour barrier as the first African-American to play the sport in the modern era.

Martin Luther King played a big part in challenging whites and blacks to bridge the racial divide in America, when making a speech “I Have A Dream” at the Lincoln Memorial.

Emmett Till, a black 14-year-old Chicago boy was brutally murdered after whistling at a white woman.

Other things on black history In the 17th and 18th centuries hundreds of thousands of Africans were sold into slavery in America and made to work on cotton and tobacco plantations. In 1865 slavery was abolished, but black people still didn't have equal rights and had to go to separate schools, churches, and even had to play on different footie teams. In 1955, this woman, Rosa Parks, sparked protests by refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man - which was against the law at the time. The protests were led by this man, Martin Luther King, who said he had a dream that one day black and white people in America would be able to come together as equals. In 1964 the country made a huge leap forward with the introduction of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which made it illegal to treat people differently because of their race. But until now, the top job has always gone to a white man, so it's a huge deal for America, and the rest of the world, that Barack Obama has become president.
