The retailer has been honoring Black History Month for five years and not just by featuring these items. The company highlights black-owned businesses that are sold in stores all year, plus it holds events for its employees and team members.
The clothing line features iconic black activists and names of influential leaders, and everything is under $30.
This T-shirt features the first names of important black activists like Malcom X, Harriet Tubman, and Frederick Douglass. It comes in men's sizes S–2XL, but could work for any gender. The casual style works with jeans or a long, flowing skirt.
This black long-sleeve T-shirt features the names of prominent countries with black populations. There are over 100 items in the exclusive collection for Target and everything is under $30. Plus, the outlet has made everything size-inclusive.
One of the inspiring figures in Barbie's Inspiring Women collection is the iconic Rosa Parks, whose birthday falls in February. Parks famously refused to give up her seat on a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama, to a white man. It sparked a series of protests at the height of the civil rights movement.
There's also a slew of beauty products that caters to black skin and hair. This eye shadow palette features deep red, maroon, and burgundy shades that highlight the gorgeous undertones of darker shades of skin. CAI makeup is inclusive of all skin tones and has a wide variety of products, including two eye shadow palettes with mattes and shimmer shades.
This heathered blush T-shirt also features names of prominent black idols like Ida B. Wells, Maya Angelou, Harriet Tubman, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Sojourner Truth. Each of these women made significant strides for both women and people of color throughout American history. From protesting to writing, wear these names proudly.
The inspirational graphic on this green sweatshirt features the saying, "I am the hope. I am the dream." It references a poem by Maya Angelou titled "Still I Rise" that is about empowering black people to overcome the prejudices they face.
Of course, Black Panther was notoriously a massive step forward for inclusivity in the entertainment industry as the first superhero movie with a cast made up almost entirely of people of color. The film was inspiring to all and was even nominated for an Oscar. Some of the Target collection reflects that, like in this graphic, long-sleeve T-shirt.
Another Black Panther–inspired tee, this shirt features the popular character Shuri, played by Letitia Wright. Shuri was the braniac sister of Black Panther, T'Challa, himself. This T-shirt offers a vintage design of the character, who became a fan-favorite for many.
