February 1st marks the first day of Black History Month, so we wanted to share with you all how we are celebrating!
For the entire month of February, we will be focusing on a different aspect of Black culture in America each week. Be sure you're following us on IG! Everything here will be featured on our stories.
- Week 1: Historical Facts! We will be sharing historical facts relating to Black history, and even Black History Month itself. There are many untold stories that deserve the light, which we will be illuminating each day of the week.
- Week 2: Black Businesses! Local, online, cosmetics, home goods, you name it! We will be sharing different Black-owned or founded businesses each day of the week. Part of being a conscious consumer is supporting a myriad of businesses.
- Week 3: Black Creators! We'll be featuring a different Black creator each day of the week. This is important in broadening horizons, opening up your social media to more diversity and new perspectives. It's also about representation in the media, which leads us to the last week of the month.
- Week 4: Importance of Media Representation! This is a topic that is very relevant in today's day and age, where media is literally everywhere we look. Whether it's social media, blogs, online shopping, magazines, or Netflix, we are surrounded. And, representation amongst all of this media has a direct affect on society. Very important!
We will also be highlighting a special guest for our Talking with T4T series on IGTV. Be sure to stay tuned! And, in case you miss anything we share on our stories, we'll be sharing weekly recaps right here on our 4Thought Blog. Happy BHM!
