Viral dance video celebrates 'Black Excellence'

Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Colin Kaepernick are just some of the names portrayed in a dance video that has gone viral and celebrates "Black Excellence."

The video was produced, shot, directed, edited, and choreographed by Antwon Collier and Kendra Oyesanya.  The two also dance in the video. They are two up-and-coming Hollywood types who are triple threats. They can dance, act, and can clearly create.

"The storyline was, be proud to be black," Collier said. 

The duo cast over 30 dancers and actors. Collier and Oyesanya said they portrayed themselves, but also paid homaged to Malcolm X and Angela Davis.

The video was actually released during Black History Month in February. However, it's gotten new traction in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.

It's been re-posted by celebrities like MC Lyte, Snoop Dogg, and Jada Pinkett.

Amidst the famous faces celebrating black excellence are professionals like doctors. 

The video ends in freestyle dance with the dance wearing all black and depicting Black Panther style.

The music video uses clean lyric portions from a rap song called "Black" by Compton rapper, Buddy and features A$AP Ferg.
