On the red carpet of the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, Issa Rae, creator, writer and star of HBO's hit show Insecure proudly proclaimed that she was rooting for everybody Black! While mainstream America went into frenzy, we saw Rae giving voice to a mantra we have known our whole lives. For centuries, we have seen the products of Black creativity undervalued and over-looked. Like many others before her, she used her platform to center the work of Black talent in white-dominated industries that deserve to be recognized by the world. So whether you're #PaintingWhileBlack, #DrawingWhileBlack or even #DirectingWhileBlack, your outstanding work is fighting to change the culture and we're rooting for you!
