Actress and FOX contributor Stacey Dash‘s comments about Black History Month weren’t taken lightly by a group of children this week.
Last week, Dash denounced Black History Month, suggesting we should do away with it altogether. The Clueless actress suggested Black History is essentially American History, and the celebration of one causes a divide rather than a bond. She continued the argument online in the form of tweets and blog posts.
This week, non-profit and advocacy group Because of Them We Can released a video featuring adorable African-American kids explaining why we need the monthly celebration. Because of Them We Can was launched by photographer Eunique Jones Gibson to spread more creative ways to celebrate Black History Month beyond just the 29 days. Her first campaign featured children dressed as modern-day Black History heroes, from former Attorney General Eric Holder, to Nelson Mandela and Harriet Tubman.
Meanwhile, many have taken to Dash’s Instagram to wish her a “Happy Black History Month.”
Check out the kids’ comeback in the video above.
