This Black History Month, we’re celebrating some of #TheMostSearched moments and individuals in America. To find them, we used U.S.-based Google Trends Data to identify Black American achievements that were searched more than any others between January 1, 2004 – when U.S. Search Data first became available – and July 1, 2019. Here’s to the history makers and all those they continue to inspire.

  1. What about the ad that you aired on hulu and YouTube only for the last few days of the month? hmm? 🤔🤨

  2. Ew Malcolm X? well we know where BLM got their inspiration-a riot and violence supporting man.

  3. Every time I hear Dr. King’s voice I get goose bumps — and I’m so moved and tear up every time I hear his I Have A Dream Speech!

  4. People commenting where is mj I hope yall know they are going based on the searched categories…plus I believe some of his accomplishments have already been too by other major platform artists who also are black..

  5. I think that if you were to add up all contributions of the Black community and then subtract the harm they’ve done to Society you’ll find they are up to their necks in deficits. And consider this, just what one thing have they done that someone else couldn’t have done?

  6. Black history month, humm , imagine if there was a white history month? Or even a brown history month. Why does everything have to be about color? Isn’t it we the people?

  7. Finally a comment section with no one spamming all lives matter and WhAt AbOuT a WhItE hIsToRy MoNtH?!

  8. Through a lot of tragedy , much has changed in the world for the better, from a history of you Black people are immensely talented and can can entertain us, but you are not our equal, to wow, you are equal, deserving of love, respect, equality, and are truly amazing! The world is still working on that proper equality and recognition, but we’re getting there, and through all the tragedy and hate, I still remain very hopeful for the future. We can only achieve greatness, together. Power to the people!😊🙏💪

  9. Just here to say it’s so many other black legends than Michael Jackson. Happy black history month 2021✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

  10. What about White History Month,Red History Month, Yellow History Month, Brown History Month???…ALL LIVES MATTER !!!!!!!….

  11. I lost my job during the pandemic.
    I created this channel in faith that things will get better for myself and the world🌍 🍇 🎸
