Celebrating Black History


"The great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it … history is literally present in all that we do,” said the great American writer and activist James Baldwin. In this curated stock footage collection, explore clips of Black icons that have shaped history - from Sidney Poitier, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Robinson, Ella Fitzgerald, Althea Gibson, and Barbara Jordan, to modern icons like Ava DuVernay, Oprah, Serena Williams, Stevie Wonder, and Toni Morrison.
