EDIT: in May, 2021 this organization rebranded as Blackartistdatabase.co, expanding to include artists, journalists, curation and other arts and media-related callings.
An important and vast database of thousands of black artists that you can support directly through bandcamp. Sharing to increase exposure, and out of respect for the hard work that has gone into this project. Over the past few years, I have personally become painfully aware of the limitations of how I consume media and encounter the world, all too often falling to the same habits, labels, sounds, and ideas that are familiar. But for shame; it is critical and necessary to do the work to look beyond the horizon, and to materially support artists in our global, human community. There is a history to reconcile, a structural conditioning to disavow and overcome equitably. I know I need to do more and do better. Do the work. Keep each other honest. Be humble. Support black musicians. Elevate black voices here, there, and everywhere; now and into the future.
BLACK LIVES MATTER.
