Target’s Black History Month line is truly on point

One way to celebrate Black History Month is by wearing it — literally — on your sleeve.

Target is celebrating by releasing a line of Black History Month-inspired apparel, and honestly, it’s perfect. The line celebrates the strength, power and contributions of American people of color by highlighting black artists and activists, celebrating Africa and proclaiming that “Black is the new black.”

“This assortment is a celebration of African American heritage and heroes, both historical and contemporary—from books by visionary authors to special tees to music by groundbreaking artists,” Target product design & development director Tawnya Artisst said in a press release.

The collection includes clothes for the whole family, from infants to kids to adults. According to merchandising director Travis McKinley, “Inclusivity guided this collection. We spent a lot of time making sure the assortment reflected our guests and appropriately celebrated African American history. Bringing this collection to life was truly a team effort.”

That effort truly shows. One of the collection’s most popular items is bound to be a T-shirt depicting the names of famous black activists from American history. It’s available as a toddlers’kids‘ or adults‘ tee, and as a onesie for the littlest warriors in your life.
