As a fashion and beauty publication, the very least we can do is use our platform — today and everyday — to amplify the voices of the many talented Black people who make this industry what it is

In addition to resources on Black creatives to follow in the fashion industry, we’re sharing a list of Black scholars in the fields of fashion, beauty and culture. Add their works into your curriculum, buy one of their books, hit up one of their exhibitions, invite them to be on your panels and ask them to serve as sources in your reporting. (We owe a big hat tip in reporting to Ben Barry, Chair of Fashion at Ryerson, for his Instagram post which inspired this list, and to Eric Darnell Pritchard for flagging it for us.)
