Black culture is the foundation of many past and current American and global trends. Many of the products we enjoy today were made possible by the innovations, leadership, and inventions of black influencers, activists, entrepreneurs, engineers, and scientists… In honor of Black History Month 2020, we’ve chosen “The Blackprint” to pay homage to those who have overcome adverse circumstances and made invaluable contributions across American history and culture.
