Because everyone needs some more of this in their life, here’s a small list of women of color creating quality content on the internet, in no particular order:
The head of Black Futures Lab and a co-founder of Black Lives Matter.
She also has a podcast called Lady Don’t Take No.
You can see everything she’s involved in, and more by following her on Twitter @AliciaGarza
She’s a talented painter, but her instagram feed (@CalidaGarciaRawles) is also full of information and activism.
I first heard of her from the “Art for Your Ear” podcast, and I highly recommend listening to the episode she was on! Here is the link:
Comedian Jazmyn W makes content that educates about racist microaggression, while still keeping it light-hearted and full of humor.
If you’re a user of TikTok, I highly recommend following her there: @jazmynjw
She also has a YouTube channel at youtube.com/comedianjazmynw.
This self-proclaimed “internet yeller” wrote a book you’ve probably heard of called “So You Want to Talk About Race” but she’s also written several articles about activism and allyship. You can see a list of some of her articles here:
(My personal favorites are “White People: I Don’t Want You To Understand Me Better, I Want You To Understand Yourselves” and “Welcome to the Anti-Racism Movement–Here’s What You’ve Missed“)
She can also be found on Twitter at @IjeomaOluo
She’s best known as a singer and a voice actress, but her Instagram stories are always full of information about what’s going on in human rights around the world. If you’re not already, follow her and stay informed!
You can find her on Instagram as @EstelleDarlings
Brittany is a writer and podcaster who helped found Campaign Zero, an organization focused on ending police violence.
She has written for MSNBC and the Harvard Institute of Politics, and she’s a regular on the podcast, “Pod Save the People.”
Her handle for both Twitter and Instagram is @mspackyetti
She’s a content creator, web-developer, activist tweeter, and the author of this lithub.com/on-the-social-power-and-limits-of-twitter-activism and other articles.
You can find her on Twitter as @MoreAndAgain
She’s a writer and educator, and the founder of The Loveland Foundation. She also created a free 30-day online course called “Do The Work,” to teach those who seek to be allies to Black Women.
This Youtuber is mostly about child psychology and parenting tips, but she also has several good videos on how to be an ally to the Black and mixed community, especially in the last few months. I’d recommend checking out all of her videos on this topic, but in my opinion, the best one to start with is
“How White Shame is Getting in the Way”
(Bonus: make sure to subscribe if you’re a parent of small children, because she has all kinds of the best advice for surviving the toddler years.)
