AT&T Presents #DreamInBlack: The Powerful 28 Future Makers during Black History Month Wednesday 20 February, 2019

This post is sponsored by AT&T for #DreamInBlack. All opinions are my own. 

It’s Black History month, and it’s seems we are always acknowledging this month for the past, but we should acknowledge the present as well. There is beautiful black history being made and created as we speak, and I got a wonderful opportunity to partner with AT&T  with their inaugural initiative called Dream In Black to celebrate the future makers of today!

Dream in Black is an always-on platform where AT&T celebrates Black culture and the creators who shape it. Dream In Black embodies a mindset where success can look like anything that we can dream. The platform views the world and creativity through an afro-futuristic lens that is rooted in AT&T’s technology, innovation and entertainment which helps to power the possibilities.

During Black History Month, Dream In Black, an always-on platform created by AT&T to celebrate Black culture and the creators who shape it, is proud to honor the Dream In Black 28 Future Makers by unveiling its first-ever Dream in Black 28 list. This list will include 27 creators who have the courage to Dream in Black.

In its inaugural year, Dream In Black has collaborated with Queen Latifah to curate a list that pays homage to the past and celebrates the future.

For many years, AT&T has supported organizations working to increase access to and entrepreneurship skill-building programs for underrepresented youths such as Black Girls Code. This year, as they continue to change the landscape of the technology industry by introducing young women of color to coding and STEM through workshops, hackathons and summer camps, AT&T is proud to donate $50,000 to support Black Girls Code’s programming to prepare and fill the jobs of the future with talent and diversity.

I want to thank AT&T for having me as a digital participant and joining the conversation for #DreamInBlack for Black History month. So many black people are doing amazing things in positive lights and we should have more positive conversations on celebrating them and influencing others to do the same. Its wonderful to always see celebrities who are trailblazing and using their platform to be great people in the community, but there are also influencers and people around the world doing the same.

I think its wonderful that there is a platform celebrating people who are creating history now, and not waiting for it to be written in a book decades later. The true meaning of Black History Month can happen when you honor powerful people of today too! This is a great celebration for Black History month, and truly hope these conversations and initiatives continue throughout the year!
