February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate the rich history and culture of Black folks. It’s also a time to reflect on the struggles that Black people have faced and to recommit ourselves to fighting for racial justice. While our ancestors did most of the legwork, we continue to carry the torch by advocating for our community, shining brightly on our talents, and starting businesses that help move the culture ahead.
One thing about Black folks is we take our 29-day (usually 28 days but this year is a leap year) celebration seriously. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — I’m Black EVERY month, but I’m Blackity-Black-Black-BLACK during February.
One way to support the culture during Black History Month is to shop at Black-owned businesses. By doing so, you can help to create economic opportunities for Black people and support their entrepreneurial endeavors. It’s also a chance to experience the creative minds of today’s business owners. As a community, we start trends and produce innovative ideas that continue to propel us to her heights. In some ways, it is a privilege to support and invest in products created by our peers and watch them continue to grow.
