Black Culture + Creativity Move the World

03 Feb 2023

Black culture + creativity move the world. They have created viral trends, sustained some of our nation’s largest social movements, and inspired innovation in fashion, beauty, tech, wellness, + more.

Black excellence isn’t new; it’s historic. To celebrate Black History Month, we'll highlight contributions from Black creatives, advocates, artists, and athletes, so watch this space.

Until then, revisit the Black History Lessons You Never Got in School. (For instance, did you know the #MeToo movement, the beer tap, and the technology behind caller ID were all created by Black folks?) Read up on how Trans Women of Color Were + Are Leaders in the Fight for Human Rights… and dive into beauty and self-love by reading How Black Latinas Learned to Love the Skin They’re In.
