15 Black Content Creators to Follow

February is Black History Month, which can be traced back to 1915, when an organization called the ASALH, led by Harvard-educated historian Carter G. Woodson was formed. By the 1960s, the week had transformed into a full month of celebrations and was signified as a national observance in 1976.

Many organizations, outlets, and creators are honoring this month by supporting Black businesses, using TikTok to learn about it, and brushing up on Black literature.

As Dr. Cornel West said, “If your success is defined as being well adjusted to injustice and well adapted to indifference, then we don’t want successful leaders. We want great leaders who love the people enough and respect the people enough to be unbought, unbound, unafraid, and unintimidated to tell the truth.”

To celebrate Black History Month, we are highlighting some hardworking and artistic content creators who inspire us with their leadership and ability to use their content to connect and inform.
