The stories behind Black History Month at Target.

  • I am a first-generation American, born to parents who immigrated to the U.S. from Ghana in the early ’60s. I grew up immersed in all things American and African just as much. I have a strong sense of who I am, and I’m the epitome of what is means to be African-American.
  • In Ghana, Adinkra symbols are used everywhere to represent life principles and concepts. When I think about Black History Month, the Adinkra symbol of Sankofa immediately comes to mind. It essentially means “look back and keep moving forward.”
