For Black History Month, The Root is celebrating blackness in a new series called I Love My Blackness. In the series, we will celebrate black skin, black style, black friendship and black love.


The first video in this melanin-rich celebration features our readers explaining why they love their black skin.

One of the men featured in the video says it best: “I just think black is gold.”

Pretty. Witty. Girly. Worldly. One who likes to party, but comes home early. I got stories to tell. Prince (yes, that Prince) called me excellence. Achievement unlocked.
