There has been a lot that has happened since I wrote my last blog post. Not just with the COVID-19 pandemic, but with a light being shined on the racial injustice and inequalities that black people have experienced and continue to experience around the world. I won’t get into all of it in this blog post, because I want to shine my own light on 5 Black Women Content Creators You Should Follow. Each of these ladies has their own unique gift of storytelling, whether it’s through travel, style, or home decor. They all inspire me to be better at what I do, and I hope you find inspiration in their work.
If you’re into travel, Lee Litumbe is the person to follow. I’m pretty sure I found her blog through Pinterest because every image she captures is worth pinning. Not only does she take beautiful images, but she also writes detailed accounts of her journey. She does an amazing job of capturing the essence of the country she’s visiting as well as the people who live there. She actually moved to Senegal back in 2017 to travel to different countries in Africa because she noticed the lack of representation of African countries when it came to travel bloggers showcasing countries they’ve visited. All the more reasons I’m obsessed with her.
If you’re looking for the coolest NYC street style blogger, Tania Cascilla is your go-to. I might be a little biased here. I know Tania IRL and sometimes shoot her looks. We met at an event about 2 years ago. She was there with her assistant, and because we were the only 3 black people there, we gravitated to each other. She has the dopest style, and her ability to put an outfit together is out of this world.
The first time I came across Onyi Moss’s work, I instantly fell in love. She has a very specific style of shooting and editing which makes her work instantly recognizable. Her attention to detail in her lifestyle/editorial videos and images is something to rave about, and I’m definitely striving to reach her level of execution when it comes to content creating.
I met Janea Brown about 2 years ago at a co-working group event. We were both starting out in the content creating field, and I remember how contagious her smile and laugh were, that I followed her right away. Since then, she has grown so much in her field which includes lifestyle and interior decor. I mean, just head over to her page. You will get major home goal vibes. She also has a Youtube channel that is pretty awesome!
Aissatou Balde is who I want to be when I grow up. She’s a mom, wife, 9 to 5er, hustle, and just a cool individual. We’re both from Guinea and have some mutual friends which are how I started following her. She is my go-to for African recipes, great motherhood storytelling/ lessons (even though I’m not a mom), and joy from images and videos of her 2 little girls when I’m feeling a little down.
There you have it. My list of 5 Black Women Content Creators you Should Follow. As you can see, I get a little something different from all of them. Who are some of your favorite Black women content creators? I would love to follow them. Drop their links in my comment or message me HERE!
