This past week has been about demonstrating for human rights and equity for the black community and people of color. Black lives matter is incredibly important to stand up for, to speak up actively, to be anti-racism and involve more black owned businesses in your daily life. These are black content creators you need to follow!
Black Content Creators and Travel Bloggers To Follow!
I haven’t spoken about black lives matter on my blog or email yet, but have been active on Instagram sharing resources and tips to be more anti-racism. I have donated to different communities, been educating myself by reading books and watching videos, signed petitions and send emails to get justice for those who have been harmed while being innocent. As a white female, I can never fully understand what it’s like to be judged based on my skin color, but I will always stand with you in this fight, listen and take action.
It needs to change so here are the black content creators, mostly in the travel and lifestyle niche, you need to follow! I highlighted five of them, but included an entire list of Instagram handles from black content creators and travel bloggers. I collected this list from the Facebook group called Wandering Women Travel Bloggers! If you have any additions to it, please let me know and I’ll add new ones to the list. You can send them to me on my contact page.
