To elevate Black voices, stories, and talents across the African diaspora by building genuine relationships and creating an inclusive creative community.
Black&Gifted was founded on June 1, 2016 by Terrionna Brockman with intentions on supporting up-and-coming creatives within the African diaspora. While completing her senior year of undergrad at Arkansas Tech University, Terrionna was urged to bring a long-time vision to life. The lack of representation and support within various creative spaces was an issue that needed to be tackled, so she sought ways to craft an inclusive community of her own for individuals who looked like her.
Black&Gifted values community, local and afar and is dedicated to bridging the gap between Black creatives across the African Diaspora. We are Black, Gifted, and elevating the Culture!
