Stub categories are meant for stub articles only. An article only belongs in one of the following stub categories if it is directly related to the category. Individuals should not be placed in one of these categories unless they are important to the history and/or culture of Africans, African-Americans or the African diaspora as a whole. Instead they should be placed according to their nationality and or profession. The number of stub categories should be as minimal as possible.

Do Not subst the templates or hardcode stub categories into the article.
