We absolutely love to see individuals use their creativity and imaginations to bring Black History Month to life. 

This year, a New York City-based teacher did just that.  

Inspired by our lovely and magical crowns Marguerite Thompson turned her classroom door into a celebration of natural hair. “In the spirit of Black History Month my class decided to recreate a work of art that many of you have probably already seen,” she posted to Facebook.

The teacher says her and her students named the door, Adebayo which means the crown meets joy in Yoruba. A name they found fitting to help celebrate Blackness while challenging societal standards of beauty. Talk about #blackgirlmagic!

Kudos to all the teachers who are using this opportunity to instill pride and self-love in the next generation of Black queens. How are you celebrating Black History Month?
