I tried to do it without looking at the list. I didn't list of Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Marilyn Monroe or Amelia Earhart. But I did include Oprah. LOL

I'm personally just glad that Britney Spears is not on the list. I found it really interesting though that 7 of the 10 were women or black. It shows a definite shift in curriculum and thinking.
