Happy Juneteenth!  On June 19, 1865, federal troops arrived in Galveston, TX to notify the slaves there that they were free. The slaves hadn’t been impacted by the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 which had been in effect more than two years prior. This may no longer be news to many reading this blog, but we’d be remiss to not reiterate what this day is all about as people contemplate how to celebrate it.  We’re celebrating freedom!

Black Identity

More Than Meets The Eye: The Many Shades of Black Identity

The recent U.S. Census report has shed light on exactly how diverse our nation is. Behind many of the faces we see lie a combination of historical, cultural, racial, and ethnic identities. One’s true identity may require a deep dive past skin color to uncover what truly makes up one’s DNA.

In this eBook, we provide a glimpse into the Black Identity. The Black community is not monolithic. Read here to explore more.

Some of the first Asian people in the US date back to as early as 1765 when Filipino sailors settled in the bayous of what is now known as Louisiana after jumping ship to leave indentured servitude. Since then, Asian and Pacific Islander people have left an impressive mark on American culture from advocating for workers’ and civil rights, innovations in technology, contributions to the culinary arts, and beyond!

You see it often nowadays. Scrolling through social media, you watch videos shared by people treating themselves to high-end gifts, exciting destination trips, fine dining, and pampering themselves with lavish self-care routines. This luxury lifestyle has long been an aspiration of many, including Blacks/African Americans. Erroneously, however, Black/African American people are not commonly top-of-mind among those who are considered to indulge in these luxuries due to misconceptions about affordability or their level of interest in this space. 

Ashleigh Williams, Senior Research Director

With so much time spent on their tech, it’s no wonder that Black/African American consumers help shape media content online and have a strong social presence via commentary on social media platforms. This dialogue has its own entity on Twitter. As we know it, Black Twitter today takes the form of the “Black voice” in response to relevant social topics.

We’ve long said that Gen Z is dedicated to inclusion. They’ve taken to protesting racial injustice since 2016, when students staged walkouts and sit-ins in support of people who were told to “go back where they came from” in a nation of immigrants. They’ve rallied around their LGBTQ+ friends to defend their basic liberties like which restroom they can use.
