Barack Obama, Rihanna and more begin the celebration of Black History Month.
Black History Month yields a number of things for the masses. There often are a myriad of capsule collections and sneaker packs paying tribute to the month like Nas' new capsule for a cause or Nike and Jordan brand's 2017 "Black History Month" collection. More importantly though, Black History month provides a time frame for people of all demographics to celebrate the rich history of African Americans, in addition to providing a template to constructively discuss American history, race relations and unify because of that discussion.
On the first day of Black History Month 2017, people all over the world have taken to social media to express their heartfelt messages and honor the deep heritage this month represents. We have gathered a number of noteworthy posts from people celebrating in hopes to share the love and pay our respects to the leaders and people before us who made Black History Month possible.
