ok i'll be honest I only know Mansa Musa off the top of my head but you could take Ethiopia as an example of something to be proud of-given that it was an incredibly long lived empire.
I'm just parroting what I saw another guy say on here a while back, I just forget the names he gave.

You're talking about African figures. African-American culture and African culture is notably separate. The OP is correct. The main source of black role models in America, the majority who make it out of poverty and gain some form of notoriety? Are rappers, thugs, and sportsmen. They are still 'black', and successful. Where you see black lawyers and such and they've almost utterly affected euro-centric attitudes, customs, personalities - because if they didn't, they wouldn't get successful in their line of work to begin with, proving that this is still the case.
But those same role models aren't the ones anyone wants, yet the only ones in any number to look up to. The ones that get ridiculed and drowned out by white society are ignored by the modern African-American, where the thug culture stands strong and defiant against criticism and attacks on its sub-culture identity. This FEELS like success to the people who have common ground with them, especially in black culture.
When black doctors and lawyers and judges and scientists become more celebrated by society as a whole, and don't have to be 'white' to get anywhere in life, you will find more blacks looking up to better behaved role models, I feel. The problem these days is that anyone trying to make that the case gets met with resistance by 'white pride'. Every time someone tries to do something positive for the black image, there are large outcries of 'white extinction' and 'unfair to whites', so the ball never gets rolling due to fear of the intense social backlash.
People may not want to hear it, but this is the way it is. Source: Seventeen years a study of psychology and sociology.
