Digital creators are the heart of the Internet. For Women’s History Month, we want to thank a few of our favorite black content creators on social media.

Black women are killing it in every industry, including beauty, tech, lifestyle, health and wellness. In a world where everyone is glued to their phones, it’s refreshing to have representation from our communities focused on a variety of interesting topics. Black women are the digital innovators, creating the trending sounds and vibes that become viral sensations.

A content creator, @khaenotbae, quickly became a viral sensation on TikTok. Her popular phrase like “girls who get it, get it” is now a popular phrase that other creators are adapting into their own content.

While these black content creators popularize phrases and sounds, they are generally overlooked for their genius innovation. Throughout the early stages of the pandemic and amid simmering racial tensions around the world, black content creators banned themselves together to address issues of discrimination and shadow banning on social media. These creators were recruited by talk shows and daytime news outlets, who wanted to “do their part”, to celebrate the brilliance and individuality of black creators in the space.

We want to make sure that black women content creators are remembered for their originality and efforts to forge an online community. It’s not an easy task, but the girls continually work through the challenges effortlessly. Take a look at the list of our favorite black content creators below. Happy Women’s History Month Ladies!
