Each month  onlyjar.com will feature a powerful figure or event of our past, that held significant importance in that particular month! This month, on April 6, 1909, Matthew Henson and a small team of others reached the North Pole. The first African-American man in history to travel that far north! Battling obstacles such as sub-freezing temperatures, sudden storms, slow starvation, and thin ice sheets that cover the Arctic Ocean exemplifies the perseverance that existed in Henson’s determined spirit. A great man, a great inspiration, Matthew Henson
