Under the mentorship of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis was a Black Civil Rights Leader who bravely, tirelessly and courageously put his freedom in jeopardy and his very life in danger to ensure — and in fact, demand that Black people be legally recognized as equal citizens in the United States of America.

John Lewis, we honor your life of dedication and commitment. We will miss you. And we thank God for everything you have done to advance civil rights on this very planet! Rest Well, King.

A huge note of thanks goes out to the African American Graphic Designers Group (AAGD) @aagd_co artists Lafe Taylor and Donelda Iysoba for creating custom pieces in honor of Althea Gibson’s image for the Althea Gibson Tennis Scholarship Fundraiser Gala.
The artwork will be auctioned at the Althea Gibson Gala. You may also make a donation to the scholarship project https://www.honoringalthea.com/

Hey Creatives - I work with a company called Level, we are looking for a social media & events intern. Level is the ultimate networking group for these generations leaders, entrepreneurs & innovators. We are a company based on community and connection, we do this by hosting monthly virtual events on topics such as marketing, podcasting, funding a business, etc… We are looking for a start at the beginning of August and you can be located anywhere as we are a remote company. We would love someone based in San Diego because that is where HQ is at and you could work with us. Some of the added perks would be margaritas (If over 21 of course), puppy cuddles, free Level membership, and access to a nationwide network of female entrepreneurs, mentorship, free coffee, and quarterly photoshoot. Please e-mail [email protected] with your Instagram handle and why you think you would be a good fit for our team. :)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVvbo78hlKg I created this video using J Cole - Neighbors for my channel Drive Music. After George Floyd I was really taken back by everything that was going on in the world. I thought back to when I first heard Neighbors a few years ago, and when I heard it back then I was like man Cole really saying some stuff about racism. It really hit me again after what happened a few weeks ago. Which is what made me make this video. Reason why I chose this song particularly is because, I think J Cole is one of the greatest rappers. And for him to rap about making it and moving up. And yet he still get treated like a drug dealer, after all he has accomplished, is crazy when you think about what I just said. He's one of the greatest rappers. not the greatest drug dealer. And really it just hit home to me, that no matter how good are something, sometimes people just can't see past color. I am also the creator of Drive Music a Music Channel on Youtube, where we drive around different locations around the world and Taylor the visuals to music

" Corporate brands swamp our digital lives, resulting in the uncanny spectacle of their social media accounts bantering with one another on Twitter, sassily posting pop culture gifs and responding to breaking news events “in voice”. Many of them have also developed their pre-existing corporate social responsibility programmes into a performance of “wokeness”, to both generate headlines and head off some of our boredom and scepticism. Whether it’s Dove soap challenging body fascism in the beauty industry or Gillette attempting to tackle toxic masculinity in the name of selling razors, our woke pounds are there for the taking."
