What do the following items have in common? 
* Automatic Elevator Doors. 
* Improved Ironing Boards. 
* Three-Signal Traffic Lights and Gas Masks. 
* Home Security Systems. 
* Carbon-filaments in Light Bulbs. 
* Animated GIFs 
* Blood Banks. 
* 3D Movies. 
* Potato chips. 
*And even Downtown Los Angeles. 

If you didn’t know, those are all a direct result of Black Americans and our ingenuity! 

Thankfully, due to the dedication of Mr. Carter G. Woodson — both a Harvard University graduate and a former Dean at Howard University (over almost a hundred years ago) — we now have a whole month —  albeit the shortest month — dedicated to honoring the participation and achievements of Black Americans to this land that we love — although it’s a complicated love. 

No, our history is NOT to be contained only in one month. But just like for those of us that like to celebrate Valentine’s Day, it’s an extra special time to give extra special attention, in this case, to many extra special someones. 

In that vein — and because we might as well jump on the fact that March celebrates women next —I want to highlight this Black History Month some Black Women in real estate who are modern history makers despite some of the hurdles they face because of their skin color and/or gender. 

They are Black excellence personified and I hope their journeys will inspire and encourage.
