[L O V E] uary.

February is for Bad Girls

February is for Carolina soul tribes

And British soulstep

It's also funny

More than anything, during February, we honor STRENGTH.

"Black History Month is about Mansa Musa, the King of Mali who extended the empire's reach into one of the largest on the planet and imposed the system of provinces and territorial mayors and governors we still use in the United States today. It's about Lewis Latimer, the man who invented the filament that took Thomas Edison's light bulb into the next century. It's about Robert Abbott, the United States' first black newspaper publisher and one of the nation's first ever black millionaires.

Black History Month is about Kwame Nkrumah, Bill Pickett, Imhotep I, Samori Toure, Belva Davis, Crispus Attucks, Dr. Ivan van Sertima, Fritz Pollard, Stokely Carmichael, Aaron Douglas, Denmark Vesey, Tousaint L'Ouverture, Nat Turner, Shirley Chisholm, Mae Jemison, Fred Hampton, Scott Joplin, Ramses II, Zumbi dos Palmares and hundreds of other men and women that you have probably never heard about." -Huffington Post
