Happy Birthday @badgalriri! Did you know that the "good girl gone bad" made history in 2015 as the first black woman to ink a deal with @Dior? Rihanna starred in Dior’s Secret Garden campaign, a brand that was previously criticized for lack of diversity on the runway. "It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color," the singer said. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence

@shondarhimes is a TV gladiator. Rhimes is the first black female showrunner to have three shows hit the coveted 100-episode mark - "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice" - cementing Shondaland’s place in TV history. “I don't know if it's a milestone because I'm a woman or a milestone because I'm an African-American woman — it's America, so everything is a milestone if you're an African-American woman it seems,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. As "Scandal's" Olivia Pope would say, “It’s handled.” #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth

Before breaking barriers as the first black woman to create and star in a premium cable series, @issarae was just trying to tell authentic stories about black women's lives. When she started her web series "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl" in 2011, she knew she was filling a void. “For so long, entertainment executives have said the reason they don’t cast people of color is that they’re not relatable onscreen. It’s such a segregationist mentality, and I always knew that it was false,” she says. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence

Since Dove's tenure, two more black women have been named poet laureate: Tracy K. Smith and Natasha Trethewey. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence

There have only been two African-American Attorneys Generals in the United States. That’s one reason why Loretta Lynch, the first black female Attorney General, left such an important legacy. Lynch saw the power of the law firsthand while watching her grandfather help blacks escape the Jim Crow south. During the 1997 civil rights case of Abner Louima, a Haitian immigrant who was assaulted by police, Lynch led the prosecution. She also worked pro bono for the organization tasked with prosecuting the perpetrators of the Rwandan genocide, which she says was “her most gratifying work.” #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence

Since 1897, the @librarycongress has been a position only held by white men. That is until 2016 when Carla Hayden became the first woman and black librarian to be sworn in as the nation’s head librarian. Hayden hopes her historic appointment can help turn the page on how we think of librarians. “As a descendant of people who were denied the right to read, to now have the opportunity to serve and lead the institution that is our national symbol of knowledge, is a historic moment,” she explained during her swearing-in speech. #BeyondFirsts #BlackHistoryMonth #blackexcellence
