Take the #RBGChallenge: 83 Days to #RBG97

Today May 22, 2017 is the 8th day of the 90 Days of Hope campaign. We invite millions of people to send a message of hope, make a statement of global unity and demonstrate mental emancipation by wearing Red, Black and Green on August 13, 2017.

Cover from the July 31, 1926 edition of the Negro World Newspaper with the Declaration of Rights which presented the Red, Black and Green.

83 days from today will be the Reddest, Blackest and Greenest day ever. August 13, 2017 will begin the 97th year since the colors Red, Black and Green were designated the colors of Black people at home and abroad. Take the RBG Challenge: Send a message of hope, make a statement of global unity and demonstrate mental emancipation: Wear Red, Black and Green on August 13th.

We have taken the liberty of designating August 13th as World Melanin Day. The melanin puts the “B” in RBG and it puts the Black in Red, Black and Green. So what better day to raise awareness of the aromatic biopolymer and organic semiconductor that makes Black people black and is worth over $350 a gram more than gold?
