As a creative, I often see my black peers get outshone by white people. The white experience is seen as the default, so their content is more palatable to a wider audience. As a result, we grow at a slower pace which makes our work seem less valuable to businesses. For a while, I’ve been curating my following for my feed to reflect my interests. Below are some of the best bloggers and creatives to follow.
Being black and having an interest in fashion can be uninspiring. When you read magazines and scroll through social media, you occasionally see yourself represented. I get bored from consuming media to which I can’t relate. Often, when you do see black people represented, we’re being exploited as a marketing tool. Therefore the exposure isn’t genuine or authentic. I wanted to take a moment to share some of the best bloggers and creatives you should be following now.
