ABOUT YOUTUBE:

 

 

 YouTube announced a multi-year $100 million fund dedicated to amplifying and developing the voices of Black creators and artists and their stories. The fund, now officially named the YouTubeBlack Voices Fund, will invest with an intention: to present fresh narratives that emphasize the intellectual power, authenticity, dignity, and joy of Black voices, as well as to educate audiences about racial justice. It’s been seven months since we announced our Black Voices Fund Class of 2021, and each of our grantees has been partnered with a dedicated YouTube Strategic Partner manager who is working with them to optimize and grow their channels. More than 132 creators & artist teams across six countries have participated in our inaugural three-week Black Voices Creator Fund Incubator Camps, where industry experts covered everything from Pre-Production 101, lighting, and digital storytelling, to alternative monetization, media coaching, and wellbeing. On June 21, 2021, YouTube opened grant applications for the #YouTubeBlack Voices Fund Class of 2022. YouTube has also worked with Project Level, The Gathering Spot, and Since the 80s to launch Future Insiders, to date reaching over 180 at-risk and underserved youth aspiring to enter the music and creative industries.
