Honoring Icons

At BET.com, we are celebrating Black History Month, and with the support of Mass Mutual, we’re pinpointing our cultural icons. From Martin Luther King Jr. to first lady Michelle Obama, we’re reflecting on how these people have influenced our paths to success and shaped how we see ourselves.
