Celebrate Black History Month with Cymphonique, Leon Thomas & Carlos Knight

In honor of Black History Month, Nickelodeon will present a series of interstitials starring Cymphonique Miller (How to Rock), Leon Thomas III (Victorious) and Carlos Knight (Supah Ninjas), who lend their talents to showcase poetry inspired by prominent African-Americans and their contributions to our world.  These spots will air across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons and Nick.com, from Friday, Feb. 3, through Wednesday, Feb. 29.

Civil Rights activist Rosa Parks, writer Phillis Wheatley and legendary musician Miles Davis are the notable African Americans featured in this year’s spots as part of Nickelodeon’s ongoing Voices campaign (www.nick.com/voices ), a youth-led movement to educate viewers by paying homage to those who have impacted our world.  Additionally, Nickelodeon partnered with Urban Word NYC, an organization that presents literary arts education and youth development programs, to produce the original poems.
