Supermodel Naomi Campbell is refusing to celebrate Black History Month - in the traditional manner. So she's going about and unilaterally changing its designed purpose. According to the supermodel - the month should be changed, to honor not just Black people . . . but all people of color.
Naomi made her beliefs known yesterday, in a stunning Instagram post.
According to wikipedia, Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States, where it is also known as African-American History Month. It has received official recognition from governments in the United States and Canada, and more recently has been observed unofficially in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
It began as a way of remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated in February in the United States and Canada, while in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom it is observed in October.
Naomi is hoping that the celebrations be opened, to include not just Black people - but in her words "ALL people of color."
Naomi told her fans, "This month [Black History Month] we celebrate and recognize ALL people of color around the globe; across all generations, industries and significance."
