Black History Month!
It’s one of my favorite months.
Well, it’s my birthday month (February 9th, just in case you’re taking notes ;))
But it’s also BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
Why do we get a month? And why the shortest month of the year…? But that’s a topic for another blog, isn’t it?
Instead, I’ll choose to list the top black artists and figures who inspire me:
10. Wendell Pierce
8. Ava DuVernay
7. Jon Batiste
6. Troy Andrews aka Trombone Shorty
5. Barack Obama
4. Colin Kaepernick
3. Wynton Marsalis
2. Kanye West
1. Any black artist pursing a dream/staying true to him/herself in the face of adversity
