African American History

Celebrating A Great and Rich Heritage

In spite of what’s being projected in the media today, African Americans have contributed to the growth of this country in hundreds, if not thousands of ways. In honor of these great men and women, R.A.R.E. Youth has published this page to display the contributions our people have made. Many of them studied the Holy Bible and they drew upon God’s word for strength, wisdom and guidance.
