content from our previous years
Introducing Black Voices Create. We launched our Black Voices Create platform in 2020, to raise awareness for Black creators whose voices were being suppressed by social media algorithms. We partnered with 4 creators whose content raised $400K for the NAACP. Creators: @jonathanbynoe, @zirab, @taylorcassidy, and @jailynisfeliz.
New Activist Training. In 2021, we supported the Marching Beyond the Madness digital activism series to keep the hype going beyond Black History Month. We partnered with our 2020 creators to make content and raise awareness of the training program.
Black Voices Create: GEMS. In 2022, we partnered with 8 content creators to put out a call to action in search of undiscovered creators whose work deserved to be seen, through videos posted to the #BlackVoicesCreateGems hashtag on TikTok. We identified those creators and promoted their videos on the platform to help them reach new audiences and build a following. Creators: @jonathanbynoe, @ndcpoetry, @espdaniella, @joefloww, @joelbervell, @piffmarti, @pierrahh, and @byvegalia.
