One of the most prolific emcees of our generation, Nasir “Nas” Jones partners with Google Arts and Culture as they launch their most extensive online collection of Black History and Culture at g.co/blackhistory called Beyond the Arts and Culture.
By working with some of the worlds most significant cultural institutions, Google has acquired a collection that will blow your mind. With this new Black History and Culture collection they will “preserve and showcase artifacts, art, documents and stories honoring the legacy of Black Americans.”
How smart was it for Google to tap Nasty Nas and afford him a platform where he could talk about his dad noted jazz musician, Olu Jones, and the impact it had on his life.
Throughout the month, Google will do a gang of things to pay respect to African Americans and their contribution to the American culture. Through special video series featuring YouTube creators talking about creating Black history in this day and time to virtual reality lessons through Google Expeditions, there is a lot one can learn from the search engine.
Another great Black History moment that is year round was the 2017 launched, Lynching In America site in partnership with The Equal Justice Initiative. Learning as much as you can about Black culture is just one click away.
