As we mark our 9th year in business, we want to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude to the incredible Blavity Inc. community that has supported us every step of the way. It has been a remarkable journey composed of unforgettable milestones, incredible people, and a series of big and small moments in which we’ve positively impacted the lives of the people in our community. 

When our founders, who met in college, embarked on this adventure in 2014, they shared a common vision: to create a platform that would elevate and amplify the diverse voices that make up the tapestry of the Black community. Today, we are proud to see that vision come to life through the stories we tell, the perspectives we share, and the change we inspire.
