Google Celebrates Black History Month With A New Commercial

Contributed by Jordyn Fields

Google is starting off its celebration of Black History Month with a new ad. In The Most Searched: A Celebration of Black History Makers, the most searched black people and black culture moments in America are showcased.


The list was compiled using Google Trends Data to identify Black culture moments from January 1 2004 (when the search engine data first became possible) to July 1, 2019.

Some of the standout clips were Most Search Homecoming featuring Howard Homecoming, Most Searches Performance featuring Beyonce‘s Coachella performance and Most Searched Athlete featuring LeBron James.

Social media responded with high favor for the video and many users said they were inspired by all the black excellence being displayed.

Although Black History Month doesn’t begin for a few more days, Google has already started a buzz around the month.
