Black culture affects every element of life. Whether it’s via the efforts of Black tastemakers changing how we eat or through the use of Black Twitter to organize whole social movements, Black people are always at the forefront of American popular culture. And it goes beyond just having a large social media following; some of our favorite Black influencers are also entrepreneurs, artists, and community leaders, in addition to being well-known on social media. Think of Ophrah Winfrey. She is everything. Following them is a genuine way to acknowledge the contributions Black people continue to make to our society, and it’s one of the ways we’ve decided to promote their successes.
Bloggers, TikTok users, Youtube stars, and other content creators may also be considered influencers. Do not disregard blogging. As a blogger, you have a “voice,” and if you use it well, you may reach a large audience—readers of your blog content. I blog rather than use Instagram.
