What does Black History Month look like for a millennial?

- advertisement -
For artist YesterdayNite, Black History Month looks like colorful images of Missy Elliot, Fresh Prince, Andre 3000, Craig and Smokey of Friday, Erykah Badu, Michael Jordan and many more symbols of Black excellence from the '90s and '00s. His most recent collection breaks the black-and-white photograph stereotype that we find in history books. His art isn't just about creating images of celebrities, he says, "but it's deeper than that. This series is based off of the people who inspired me to be who I am today – this is what my black history month looks like.” This 10-piece collection is for the people who grew up reading about the amazing acts of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, but never got to witness those things first-hand. Scroll through the impactful Black History Month portraits below.
