By now, most of us probably watch more YouTube content than actual television. Or maybe you just like binging it all. Whatever the case, check out these amazing Black YouTubers and show your support!
These are all creators who I’ve been following and loving, but, that doesn’t mean these are the only Black creators out there. YouTube definitely has its issues, but, we can all at least show support by subscribing, watching and liking videos, or even donating directly to livestreams on top of doing our due diligence with protests, donating, signing petitions, and supporting Black-owned businesses.
And one more thing…. Share your favorite Black creators in the comments section! It doesn’t even have to be YouTubers–illustrators, podcasters, writers, you name it!
For the tingles (ASMR)
Even if you aren’t into Reiki, Tyler’s videos are still SUPER calming with his voice and topics. Certain words tend to give me ASMR tingles when relaxing and going to sleep, so his whispered talking is definitely a go-to when getting ready for bed.
Boheme and Chella ASMR
Her foreign language ASMR videos are great! Well, all of the videos have amazing sound quality and great tingles, but she is definitely the queen of language ASMR videos. Get rested and learn a thing or two from a different language.
For the advice
Wow, what a freakin’ secret gem of content! You want to be an entrepreneur? Create a side hustle? Maybe even start your own YouTube brand? Roberto is your man. Most videos out there about these topics are super basic and just mostly fluff to sell an expensive course, but, Roberto is here to give you real insight and actionable goals.
Millennial in Debt
Think investing, personal financial, and getting out of debt are out of your reach or too complicated to understand? Don’t worry, these two financial queens got your back. Shakira and Melissa have created an empire with videos, articles, a financial literacy book, and more. Like Roberto, Millennial in Debt is real, actionable content that is easy to understand and totally manageable if the idea of a budget spreadsheet makes your head spin.
For the commentary
This is actually Dangelo’s second channel, where the videos aren’t as “polished” (they are still amazing) and he talks about pop culture and general commentary. I’m not a fan of the commentary YouTubers who just tend to yell into their mic or don’t really provide a solid opinion on something–Dangelo is the complete opposite. I will easily binge through a bunch of his videos at once while laughing along the way.
Amanda is seriously talented in not only commentary but also makeup, which is what initially drew me in. Wanna know about a new Netflix show and if it is worth the watch? Amanda does a lot of videos on television along with her opinions on it lately, but she also does general pop culture and lifestyle commentary. Plus, her eyeshadow is always inspiring!
For the lifestyle
Wow, been following Kayla for yeaarrssss and still love watching her lifestyle videos, especially while getting stuff done around the house as her every day routines can be super inspiring to get off your butt! Her Insta is also very aesthetic and just her overall vibe on her channel too.
The bulk of Matildah’s content is all about upcycling things into super stylish fashion and altering your current clothes, but she also has a lot of great content related to style in general and also lifestyle videos that are super fun to watch. Her tutorial videos are easy to follow, she doesn’t ramble on about random stuff when you’re on the hunt for a tutorial, and it always looks SO GOOD.
