It seems like everyday there’s another national holiday.
Whether it’s National Game & Puzzle Week or National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day — which is actually today (Nov. 7), there’s pretty much a day or week observance for everything.
However, #DuragHistoryWeek, Black Twitter’s annual celebration of the cultural mainstay that is the durag is officially back in action and we’re so here for it.
We’re always game to celebrate an aspect of Black culture and this hashtag does just that. Whether the durag was worn for the sake of the ever important waves, to hold your wrap in place or for a stand-alone fashion statement, it’d be hard to deny it’s presence in the Black community.
We’re caught between intense laughter and much respect for the iconic fashion statement. Honoring durag greats like Harriet Tubman, Jay Z and even Rihanna, we’ve found the most hilarious and spot-on durag moments this time around.
