100 Greatest African Americans is a biographical dictionary of one hundred historically great Black Americans (in no particular order; that is, they are not ranked), as assessed by Temple University professor Molefi Kete Asante in 2002.

Criteria

Asante used five factors in establishing the list:

  • "significance in the general progress of African-Americans toward full equality in the American social and political system"
  • "self-sacrifice and a willingness to take great risks for the collective good"
  • "unusual will and determination in the face of great danger and against the most stubborn odds"
  • "a consistent posture toward raising the social, cultural and economic status of African Americans"
  • "personal achievement that reveals the best qualities of the African American people"
