African American Heritage Month


Client: White House History — African American History
February marks the beginning of African American History Month — an annual celebration that has existed since 1926.

The objective for this design was to emphasize the role that African Americans have played in U.S. history. Bold imagery, beautiful patterns and rich colors were used throughout the entire site. The main content would be mostly static, except for the News section which would be XML driven.
