Black History Style

Johnny Hodges

Alright, it’s Black History Month and that means it’s time to celebrate the pivotal cultural, scientific and political achievements of some of America’s most important individuals. (Sounds kind of stale doesn’t it?) Among the lauded are the usual suspects: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, etc…but what about those other guys? The ones that changed history by not only combating against American racism, but also redefining and tweaking American style in ways that are still relevant today. The blog, Street Etiquette has teamed up with GQ to present a feature entitled, The Birth of Cool: 20 Black Style Pioneers, which presents to us twenty individuals who had pivotal roles in defining the sartorial image of the modern black man. Finally, a refreshingly new perspective in teaching history.
