The 1987 Calendar of Black History
Aetna's 1987 calendar focused on African Americans whose creativity, passion and tenacity enabled them to achieve renown. The calendar profiled Marshall W. "Major" Taylor, the fastest bicycle rider in the world; Bert Williams, the first African American to perform in the Ziegfeld Follies; Dorothy Dandridge, an Academy Award-nominated actress who earned a star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame; Nat Love, cattle country's championship roper; Scott Joplin, the ragtime composer of "The Entertainer"; and Whitney M. Young Jr., a consultant to two presidents, including John F. Kennedy.
