Every February we celebrate Black History Month to remember the multiple contributions renowned -and little known- members of the African American Community have made to the world. People like Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman are remembered as iconic individuals. But also, it is a month for cultural events to highlight the best of the African American Culture.To commemorate the cultural side of this important month of the year, we have put together a Collection of various Graphic Design Projects from Behance.net to show you the most interesting Black History Month designs we could find.
Another great example of Black History Month designs. An invitational poster to one of the many events held around the country in February.
The UK holds Black History Month in October. This is a poster from one of 2013 events.
Here are 3 postcards from a wonderful collection posted by Dominic Martin-Manning. Make sure to visit Dominic’s post to see the 21 postcards celebrating African American role models. (Truly a MUST-SEE!)
This is a unique way to celebrate Black History Month. Using wearables and fashion to make a statement.
