50 Black Instagram Influencers You Should Follow RIGHT NOW

Happy Black History Month.  All of you know by now that Instagram is my jam. Every now and then, these lists come out  of “influencers you need to follow” etc etc. I look at these lists and never see my tribe. Never see my friends. Never see all the creativity that flows through my Instagram feed. Never see the MELANIN RICH BEAUTY OF BLACK WOMEN on these lists.

So, I decided to fix that. And give you MY list of Black Instagram Influencers.

Now this is not a definitive list. There are too many of us. But this is a start. It’s proof that we are here, we are flourishing, we are in fashion, we design, we travel, we cover the media, we write books, we make art, we are activists, we run media empires, we own our own businesses, we host conferences, we are moms, we are wives, we set trends.


So on this first day of Black History Month, I’m giving you MY list. Enjoy. And share it. The world needs it.
