Snap celebrates Black History Month
on Thursday, 4 February 2021 0:00
As we kick off Black History Month, we're releasing new features and tools to celebrate the vibrant culture and history of the Black community. Honouring the theme of Black Excellence, a series of celebratory Lenses, Bitmoji Stickers and Creative Tools are available highlighting the creativity of Black artists and Lens creators as well as our larger community.
We've always wanted to make sure that the content on our Discover platform reflects our community and the issues they care about. That's why this month we're releasing Black History Month content from our publishing partners like NBC News, “Stay Tuned” as well as the third season of the hit Snap Original series, “The World”. This season, produced by Complex, follows the powerful journey of athlete and activist Colin Kaepernick in his continued fight for equity and opportunity for the Black community. Premiering on 6 February, “Kaepernick VS the World” will also include interviews with fellow activists like Dexter Derden and Black Lives Matter co-founder, Alicia Garza.
As we reflect on a challenging year, it is important to acknowledge the ways that people in the past and present have taken a stand and raised their voices in the face of injustice – as well as the work that still lies ahead. We take immense pride in the diversity of our Snapshot community, and we're committed to continuing to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in our own systems and beyond.
Join us in celebrating the ongoing creativity, legacy and achievements of the Black community and our diverse array of Snapchatters during Black History Month and beyond.
