Black Creators to Support Right Now
This week, I gathered some links to help support Black Creators and the Black Lives Matter movement on different platforms. Another way to help is to buy from local Black-owned businesses in your area. This previous post has links to donate to and other helpful materials. This list contains only a small bit of the resources out there, but I hope that these can help people wanting to do more get started. Simply click on the embedded links to see these great artists' works.

When you’re on YouTube, turn off your AdBlock, and stream these videos to help. All the money collected from the Ads will be donated. This is a great way to help raise money, if you’re unable to contribute funds of your own. Don’t leave the video on repeat, simply check back in every once in a while if you aren’t actively listening. Do not mute the video: mute the tab instead; YouTube can tell if the volume isn’t playing and will not count your view.
This resource tells you how to mute a tab on different browsers.
