Current North Pole Color: Purple
The NBR is turning the North Poles purple in remembrance of Kobe Bryant. For the entire month of February, we will leave the North Poles purple to celebrate the African American leaders who paved the way and set new heights for our benefit and the benefit of so many others. May their royalty shine forever in us, and in our communities. Happy Black History Month!
