🙌 10 Creators To Follow This Black History Month


Black History Month is celebrated every February, but in the creator economy, there are trailblazers who are redefining what it means to be an influencer every day, week, and month of the year. 

To celebrate these Black role models and mold-breaking artists on social media, the Passionfruit staff compiled a list of some of the most exciting rising stars in the creator space who are truly changing the game.

Although these creators represent a variety of niches, from food to fashion, to education and activism, what they share is an unapologetic celebration of Black joy, history, and culture that inspires and informs millions of people around the world on TikTok, Instagram, and even the White House.
