In honor of Black History Month, Fox News Channel has produced a special series saluting exceptional African-Americans. The series continued this morning on Fox & Friends with the inspirational story of Lezlie Hiner. While Lezlie’s never had children of her own, she’s given up her life to help disadvantaged kids in Philadelphia. Seventeen years ago, she started a horse-riding program called “Work to Ride,” in order to get kids off the streets and give them a sense purpose. Then, she formed the first African-American high school polo team, and what she and her kids have accomplished is nothing short of extraordinary. To see this remarkable story, watch the video below.
Coming up next week, we’ll introduce you to an absolute spitfire named Barbara Hillary. Barbara battled through not one, but two different types of cancer. Instead of laying low and taking it easy, she became an adventurer, traveling to a part of the world no other African-American woman has gone before.
