Black&Gifted is a platform where creatives who identify as black can thrive, be heard and be supported. Founded on June 1, 2016 by Terrionna Brockman, Black&Gifted seeks to create positive change within the black community through the arts. It is important that we have the opportunity to speak our minds, display our talents and make valuable connections.
Terrionna created Black&Gifted shortly after graduating college. She noticed a lack of black representation in the arts and the struggle with making authentic connections on various online platforms. There was always a fight for exposure between creatives and she didn’t feel a sense of community. She decided to create her own space where she could connect with other talented creatives who look like her.
I am a graduate of Arkansas Tech University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in Graphic Design and a minor in Spanish. I am a creative, educator and dog mom. I have a passion for music, traveling and art and have grown in the realm of music journalism. Black&Gifted is a platform where those, like myself, have the opportunity to speak on their passions, display their talents and make connections. I also want this to be a space where up and coming music artists can have a home base, build authentic relationships and get the exposure they deserve.
