This is Deadspin's attempt to not only create a comprehensive list of African-American quarterbacks in the NFL, but to give them each a biography, ranging from one or two sentences about guys who washed out quickly to long, detailed discussion of men like Fritz Pollard, Michael Vick, and Steve McNair.

Congratulations to Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy (seniors candidate), Claude Humphrey (seniors candidate), Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams for their election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
