#CreateBlackHistory: Celebrating Black History Month with YouTube.

Over the past year, we’ve seen historic examples of “firsts” in so many different areas of society and Black History literally being made every single day. This month, and every month, I’m inspired by the future faces of Black History on this platform–incredible artists, musicians, beauticians and comedians like Todrick Hall, Ari Fitz, Andrea’s Choice, and TPindell. That’s why, this Black History Month, we are excited to celebrate these awesome creators by having them share who inspires them every day.

To recognize these contemporary history-makers in the making, we asked 28 different YouTube creators to tell us who they believe is creating Black History. Each day this month, we’ll publish one of those videos as a Reel on YouTube Spotlight channel.


In addition to our daily videos, we’ll share a new playlist each week of February, celebrating the luminaries who have been making Black History of late.

Celebrate Black History Month with us by visiting youtube.com/spotlight on your phone and swiping over to the Reels tab. And after watching the Reels, tell us who inspires you with the hashtag #CreateBlackHistory.
