JOIN THE CELEBRATION — OCTOBER 30TH IS NATIONAL DASHIKI DAY!

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Oct. 30 is National Dashiki Day, a day of cultural celebration to the colorful garment that was adopted by African-Americans in the 1960’s and 1970’s as a symbol of pride, awareness, independence, and power. Although the loose-fitting pullover garment traces its roots to West Africa, it found a place in America during the post-civil rights era of the late 1960’s during the black power movement.
