Oct. 30 is National Dashiki Day — a day of cultural celebration to the colorful garment that was adopted by African-Americans in the 1960s and 1970s 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 1960s during the black power movement.

National Dashiki Day takes place on Oct. 30, 2017, where it is referenced across the internet, including 10000’s of mentions on Twitter. Facebook & Instagram.
