Hakeem: To me, it's very important to remember our ancestors, parents, grandparents, activists, leaders and anyone else who paved the way for us. To be able to get jobs like these and to be able to freely be who we are today. I think it’s a really important month - and it’s important to show insight and pay attention to the people that got us here not just for this month, but beyond.
Shy: For me, it’s about remembering notable African Americans and what they did for us today. It’s also about looking at Black influencers of today to see what they are doing for our community. But really, I think it's mostly about remembering what's been done for our community.
