It’s Black History Month, and in New York, history is still being made.
The new attorney general, Letitia James, is the first black woman elected to statewide office in New York.
Andrea Stewart-Cousins, the majority leader of the State Senate, is not just the first African-American woman but the first woman to lead any part of the State Legislature.
There are countless others whose earlier contributions went underappreciated. The Times has been telling their stories in its Overlooked Project, obituaries of influential figures who should have been more fully recognized.
Here are a few snapshots:
Gladys Bentley was Harlem’s most famous lesbian performer in the 1930s.
“Bentley sang her bawdy, bossy songs in a thunderous voice, dipping down into a froglike growl or curling upward into a wail,” according to her belated Times obit.
“She often confronted male entitlement and sexual abuse in her lyrics,” the obit added, “and declared her own sexual independence.”
She died in 1960.
A hundred years before Rosa Parks, there was Elizabeth Jennings.
She won a discrimination lawsuit in 1855 against a Manhattan trolley company that wouldn’t let her ride in a whites-only car.
Jennings, who was also an educator, died in 1901.
Philip A. Payton Jr., a real estate mogul, helped make Harlem a black mecca.
In 1904, a new subway line opened to 145th Street, making Upper Manhattan more accessible.
That year, Payton incorporated the Afro-American Realty Company “to help remake Harlem as a home for black citizens who faced discrimination in housing,” according to his Overlooked obit.

The Times’s Corey Kilgannon reports:
The legal battle over a painting of the teenage Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is over, and the East Hampton art dealer who successfully defended his ownership is opening up about the painting’s odd trail to his hands.
A federal judge last week dismissed the lawsuit by Bouvier Beale Jr., a cousin of Mrs. Onassis, against the dealer, Terry Wallace, because the parties reached a confidential settlement that Mr. Wallace called “amicable.”
Mr. Beale had claimed in the suit that the painting was stolen from his relatives — the former socialites, both named Edith Beale, who lived in squalor in Grey Gardens, a sprawling house in East Hampton featured in the cult 1975 documentary “Grey Gardens.”
The painting of Mrs. Onassis, who would become the first lady, as a teenager was commissioned by her father, “Black” Jack Bouvier, who Mr. Beale claimed left it to the Beales of Grey Gardens.
Mr. Beale said it was probably stolen from them in the late 1960s, and he demanded its return.
Mr. Wallace offered the judge a different version of the painting’s provenance: that Ms. Onassis, while still a young woman, gave the painting to her riding instructor, Theresa Schey, who was also a business partner of the fashion designer Oleg Cassini.
Ms. Schey left the painting to her daughter, who ran the Village Antiques shop in East Hampton, where Mr. Wallace said he bought the painting legitimately in 1990.
He said he would try to sell it so it could be displayed “somewhere it can be appreciated.”
It’s Thursday — find some art and hold onto it.Metropolitan Diary: Overwhelmed
I had an appointment to see an apartment and, according to Google Maps, had left exactly enough time to get there from work.
Of course, I got there late and missed the appointment completely when the real estate agent had to go home.
I was in the Barclays Center subway station. I began to feel overwhelmed by the prospect of trying to find a permanent place to live. I started to cry.
The R wasn’t coming, so I decided to walk to Fulton Street to get the G. I was still crying when I walked onto the platform at the station there.
A woman smiled at me. Embarrassed, I averted my eyes and brushed past her.
“Are you O.K.?” I heard her ask.
I stopped and removed my headphones. She was sitting on a bench.
“What?” I said.
“Are you O.K.?”
She patted the seat next to her.
“From one human to another,” she said. “What’s up?”
I sat down beside her and, still crying, began to explain everything. We talked until, at some point, I started to laugh.
When the train arrived, we got on together. And then we got off at the same stop. It turned out she had lived in my neighborhood for 15 years.
