It’s still January, but Google got a head start on Black history month this past Sunday. During the Grammy awards they released their Black history month commercial and it has been very well received on social media.

The ad names all “the most” searched categories, all of which happen to be Black people.

  • The most searched guitar solo is Prince’s from the 1984 movie “Purple Rain”
  • The most searched live performance is Beyoncé’s from the 2018 Super Bowl half-time show
  • The most searched EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner is John Legend
  • The most searched female poet is Maya Angelou
  • The most searched basketball dunk is Michael Jordan
  • The most searched tennis player is Serena Williams
  • The most searched gymnast is Simone Biles
  • The most searched athlete is  Lebron James
  • The most searched ballerina is Misty Copeland

Social media almost immediately erupted with high praise for Google’s ad, as it shows just how much we as black people have accomplished and will continue to accomplish.
