Black voices are so richly powerful. Although it is important to highlight them with the proper visibility during the month of February, it is crucial that they have the opportunity to be heard all year round in order to promote true equity and inclusion. In this spirit, streaming platform Hulu and social networking site Twitter have solidified their commitment to Black voices with a newly announced line up of their "Black History Always" series exclusively shared with EBONY.
Earlier this month, we previously shared a Hulu x Twitter Spaces conversation between Grown-ish stars Trevor Jackson and Diggy Simmons moderated by Van Lathan. The platform also hosted a conversation between This is Us writer Kay Oyegun and Phil Augusta Jackson ,the creator of Grand Crew, which was moderated by Danielle Young, a frequent EBONY contributor. The conversation proved to be so popular and inspiring, the platforms have decided to extend the conversation series past Black History Month .
Pairs of prominent Black voices from across Hulu, The Walt Disney Company and Disney Streaming will hold audio centric talks on Twitter Spaces for the remainder of February and into March. These conversations will dive into the artists’ lives and careers while highlighting Black creators' contributions to pop culture. Each conversation will be 30 minutes long and listeners can join with their Twitter accounts to follow along with the discussion.
