Test Your Black “Herstory” IQ

Think you deserve the title of “Black Herstorian”? See how you do on our quiz!



But the truth is, one very short month (even if it was Leap Year) is not enough room to showcase more than a fraction of black women’s history. So stay tuned for more stories throughout March, Women’s History Month!

  1. Thanks for posting this quiz and the additional information about each answer. I got 12 out of 13, but if it had been fill-in-the-blank instead of multiple choice, I would not have done as well. I will share this on Facebook and twitter.

    12 out of 13…not bad. But I am a “herstorian” by profession, so a 92% is not good enough 🙂
