ABOUT US

THE COLLECTIVE​

The Black & Brown Podcast Collective is an ecosystem of podcasters, creators of color, and allies who are redefining the media landscape. They are changing the narrative. They are telling their stories from their unique experience and perspectives. They are countering racism and gender bias, challenging stereotypes and sharing more inclusive stories direct from the people who are experiencing them. We amplify Black voices. We amplify voices of color and the voices of our allies.
