#Blackourstory You know how we cringe when we see old Black men in bright suits? That's yet another way that African Americans have preserved their heritage. Before the trans Atlantic Slave trade, it was common for Western Africans, to wear bright colors when they worshipped. Worship was seen as a celebration. Along with bright colors, there was joyful dancing,shouting, and singing. The women wore elaborate head wraps. Sound familiar?
