All Black Everything

Happy Black History Month!

Even though I firmly believe we should celebrate African diversity and culture all year long, February is a great time to reflect and remember the contributions the black community has had over the world. As we dust off our history books and connect to our roots of the past, make sure to include the progressions that black people are making today. Whether it’s supporting a black business, movie, book, art, etc, black history is about celebrating the past, present, and the growing future. Let’s continue to spark revolutions and conversations of inclusivity and the importance of representation. Here’s a list of things to see, hear, read, and support in honor of being black.
