In the social media world, it’s no secret that some of the most successful influencers with the largest followings are predominately white. The racism that people of colour in the U.S, here in Canada, and around the world face isn’t new and has sadly been happening for centuries, but the time for it to end is now. In an effort to amplify their voices, we have chosen to share 15 black creators that you should be following if you aren’t already.
Former Harper’s Bazaar editor Chrissy is not only outspoken on important issues, but her fashion content and real-life advice will be a welcome addition to your timelines.
