If you happened to tune in to last Sunday's Super Bowl, you might have noticed how much melanin was involved in front of the camera. Performances by Jazmine Sullivan and H.E.R. were must-sees while The Weeknd held down halftime duties. However, what you may not have known is that the Black effect was in full bloom behind the scenes too. 

Oh yeah, history was made. 

Dionne Nicole Harmon and Jeannae Rouzan Clay became the first Black women to produce the Super Bowl Halftime Show in the NFL's 55-year history of hosting the annual event. While those ladies held down producing duties, Lila Nikole Rivera Poteet was the lead costume designer for the dazzling performance, which included a host of musicians and dancers. 

In 2019, Roc Nation, Jay-Z's entertainment company, took over the Super Bowl halftime duties, and last year, Jesse Collins was named executive producer of the festivities. In a time where many acts were refusing to sign on for the revered break in America's favorite game, Collins and Roc Nation have sought to repair the relationship between the NFL and the Black community. 

There's no doubt this historical moment can be credited to their decision to work with the league to strengthen its commitment to our people and our issues. Hopefully, this will be the first and not the last time Black women are given the reigns to something of this magnitude for a world-renowned corporation. 

Honestly, who's next?
