Black History Month – 1 February – 28 February

February starts with the Black History Month celebrations

After commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day back in January, we also celebrate the fight and achievement of the Afro-American people during this second month of the year. There are 4 primary colors that take the spotlight within this important event: red, representing all the blood shed for the Black people’s liberation. Green symbolizes African Nature. Yellow serves as a reminder of positivity and optimism, and black is the main color of the Afro-American community.

The black fist has also become vital to represent the fight and unity for Afro-American civil rights, especially after the events following George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter movement. Don’t forget to include the black fist in your creations.
