26 Jun 20 Black Texas-Based Content Creators We Should be Following Now
As we continue to witness small strides in the Fashion, Creative, and Arts world towards true diversity and inclusion, there still is a long way to go. Black Lives Matter is not a trend, but a movement that has been fighting for justice for years now. With the recent resurgence we’ve seen Hollywood, the music and fashion industries taking accountability for their lack of inclusion. Content creators are now speaking up as well and calling out companies for lack of opportunities, underpayment, and even unfair treatment in comparison to their non-black counterparts. As this helps the creative community take a step forward towards equality, we want to showcase the talented creative community that Texas has to offer. We know there are so many more than just 20, but these selections were our top out of a vast sea of Black, Brown and Afro-Latinx content creators we absolutely love and encourage you to follow for Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle and Travel inspiration in your feeds.
