Black History month is off to an excellent start in the United States of America.
An annual celebration, Black History Month is a month-long observance that takes place every year in the month of February.
The historic celebration is recognized in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Last year, a twenty-one-year-old cosplayer named Kiera Please stole the show with her amazing costumes.
This year, however, it is the children of the United States who are stealing all of the spotlight.
A video of a group of kids dressed up as famous CNN anchors/ commentators has gone viral over the course of the past few days.
The children dressed up as Don Lemon, Bakari Sellers, April Ryan, Symone Sanders, and Angela Rye to deliver the news.
In celebration of black history, the kids delivered news on some of the amazing feats of excellence achieved by black people in recent years.
They talked about thirty-six-year-old Serena Williams’ win at the Australian Open last year.
A Grand Slam win which she achieved despite been eight weeks pregnant with her first child together with husband Alexis Ohanian.
Another topic of discussion as the kids mimicked CNN was the historic collaboration between Gucci and black designer Dapper Dan.
DapperDan of Harlem and GUCCI history is MADE!!!! . Custom DapperDan GUCCI gear. This is super cool GUCCI will provide him with materials, patches, prints, and all the rest. He'll be making custom DapperDan GUCCI gear. . By APPOINTMENT ONLY . #gucci #dapperdan #harlem #legendary #luxuryhouse #luxury #luxurylifestyle #guccianddapperdan
Designer Dapper Dan and Gucci store opened late last month in the designer’s home city of Harlem.
Dapper Dan will be providing bespoke high-end outfits in his name although he will be supplied with fabric and materials by Gucci.
Last but not the least was Black Panther, Marvel’s first all-black superhero movie’s record-breaking pre-sale numbers.
Black Panther has proved to be a shining beacon of Black excellence in this year’s celebrations.
Due to premiere in cinemas on February 16, the movie is on the verge of breaking pre-sale records worldwide.
In fact, a video of kids from Ron Clark Academy dancing and screaming to celebrate the fact that they’re seeing the almighty Black Panther together has gone viral.
Black Panther had really gotten a huge following since 2016 when the character made his debut in Captain America: Civil War.
Although it won’t be released for another two and a half weeks, estimates indicate that the film could earn between $120 and $150 million opening weekend.
This number will most likely put it above DC’s Batman vs Superman which currently holds the pre-sale record.
So I am aware this is supposed to be about famous people that change the history- but I feel the need that Brandon Graham should get credit- were credit is due for helping the Eagles secure the Super Bowl win. Congratulation to the Philidelphia Eagles for taking home this win. The dry spell is over. #brandongraham #blackhistorymonth
Black History Month will also be a theme at today’s Super Bowl LII game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots.
The Philadelphia Eagles have selected ‘Dreams And Nightmares’ by Meek Mill to play as the team takes the field.
The team’s defensive end Brandon Graham gave NFL.com a fairly straightforward (and inarguable) reason for the song’s selection.
‘If you’re going to go with a Philly song, that’s the one you’re going with’.
Derek Barnett of the Eagles also told NFL.com,
‘It just gets us going. It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice’
In the words of mini Don Lemon from the adorable CNN spoof, “Happy Black ’istory Month!”
