07 Jun Black Creators to Follow & Ways to Take Action
This movement is about all of us. It’s about admitting that our ignorance was a part of the problem. It’s about questioning our believes, reevaluating our society and taking ongoing actions towards change. This is just the beginning. This post is dedicated to the black advocates, influencers and creatives who are helping me to better understand. The best thing we can do right now is learn together and these people are changing perspectives through their individual eloquence. It is also important that we remember this is not just about resharing a post it’s about educating ourselves, having real conversations and taking steps towards action. Scroll to the bottom of the post for actions to take now. Again I believe this is just the beginning but these are the ways I’m learning and I hope they inspire you to as well.
