African American History Challenge (AAHC). Created in 2001, the African-American History Challenge recently celebrated its 22nd year! The AAHC is a collaboration between the 100 Black Men of Omaha and Omaha Public Schools, was sponsored in part by Cox Communications and the Gilbert M. & Martha H. Hitchcock Foundation. This flagship competition is a reading program designed by the 100 Black Men of America to enhance the study of African-American history and culture among middle and high school students. Over its tenure, the AAHC has provided over $450,000 in awards and prizes to deserving Omaha area students of all races and ethnicities.
