Black History Month is a time where we can reflect on parts of history that have helped shape the America we live in today. A time where we can acknowledge the struggle to obtain basic human rights. A time where we can admire those that died in the ongoing fight for civil rights. A time where we can honor significant legacies that have paved the way for key industries today. A time to embrace possibilities to come.

The Modern Vintage staff and I are grateful for the collective impacts of those that have paved the way. Stay tuned to our Facebook page throughout this special month as we’ll be spotlighting different individuals and their impacts each week. Join us as we celebrate the culture, history, and heritage of Black Americans!
