Blackboard, Pinterest’s employee community group for all things African-American, was hard at work getting the platform ready for Black History Month.
When Pinners search for Black History Month and related terms, they will see the colors of the Pan-African flag, as well as curated content on black and African-American history.
Pinterest also highlighted black and African-American creators on its platform in a blog post:
Mother and interior stylist/blogger extraordinaire Stacey-Ann Blake, from Design Addict Mom, has a penchant for bold colors and patterns that can be seen all throughout her work.
Aurélia Durand is a graphic designer who creates a variety of work with augmented reality, animations, paintings, murals, and illustrations. Her mixed cultural background resonates in her work, in her patterns and color palette. Her art is a vivid celebration of diversity.
Aaron Hutcherson is a writer, chef, lover of all things food and creator of The Hungry Hutch. His blog features a variety of savory and sweet recipes that reflect a mix of his soul food upbringing, professional culinary expertise, and gastronomic curiosity.
Kim Lewis is the co-founder of CurlMix, a family-owned company on the South Side of Chicago that gives curly women the best wash and go. She quit her first job fresh out of college to throw herself into the beauty space.
Omo and Eulanda are the creator couple behind Hey Dip Your Toes In, which they hope emboldens people to enrich the tapestry of their lives.
Shelcy and Christy are the fashionable sister duo behind NYCxClothes, and their talents range from travel to style advice. They want their viewers to think of them as two Haitian sisters who will give them tea and tell them stories about their lives, about New York and about the world.
