Funding for Black History Month

Hi, It's Black History Month!!! I think it's a great opportunity to support Black creators in the group. Id ask if you want to celebrate this year, if you know of a Black creator doing amazing work please give them their flowers, share their work, and ask how you can help their efforts. I wanted to share some resources for Black creators and entrepreneurs. Please stay encouraged.
