This February, HuffPost Black Voices is honoring black men and women who are paving the way to a better future for black America. As part of our “Black Future Month” series, we will highlight the work of deserving individuals who are striving to make the world a more inclusive place for generations to come.
For the final installment of our series, we’re honoring six dynamic influencers who shine with creativity, produce stellar platforms, and help to bring greater representation to the fields of arts and entertainment. We hope you admire their work and participate in the conversation online: #BlackFutureMonth.
