When February comes around, we know that it’s a month-long celebration of Black History Month and the influential and important members of the community who have contributed to society and the entire world. While there should not have to be a month to celebrate culture—it should be celebrated and embraced every day—it’s nice to see that companies and corporations are embracing diversity and acceptance.
Recently, Target released an entire line of clothing, including a kid’s line, to celebrate influential members of the black community during February. The clothing items, which are amazing, feature historical individuals who have helped shape the world, as well as musicians and other artists. In a press release, the corporation stated:
“This assortment is a celebration of African American heritage and heroes, both historical and contemporary—from books by visionary authors to special tees to music by groundbreaking artists.”
But, the celebration and empowerment does not stop there. The company also said:
The assortment is just one way Target is celebrating Black History Month. Target leaders will also be traveling to Atlanta this month for a lab with organizations that support African American students in higher education, including HBCU, the Atlanta National Black MBA chapter and UNCF. This year, we’re also helping longtime Target partner UNCF celebrate its 75th anniversary, supporting the organization’s Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast, and donating $100,000 to UNCF’s “Empower Me” tour, which visits select cities across the country to honor students receiving scholarships.
The line of clothing and accessories is not only inclusive and fashionable but celebrates important people we should always remember.
Products are available in men’s, women’s, and children’s sizes and can be found on Target’s website or in over 700 stores across the country.
