Black Twitter is a network of black people or people who support issues affecting black people. Among black online communities, this is a group of culturally connected black people using Twitter to draw attention to issues of concern to black communities and racism. The platform aims to coalesce around an issue, speak back to depictions, and offer alternative ways of seeing black-lived experiences. 

Black Twitter speaks to the uncomfortable culture familiar to all black people growing up in their places of residence, schools, workplaces, and social lives. It shows diversity from specific communities. The communities are made up of black people in tech, black journalists, black creatives, black women in tech, black travelers, black designers, and black artists, among others.

The online community was born from significant conversations surrounding how black people/ creators use Twitter. Among such conversations was Farhad Manjoo’s in 2010, when he wrote an article for Slate called “How Black People Use Twitter.”

Sometimes the community is visible through hashtag and trending topics; sometimes it’s not. Black Twitter has influential personalities adding their voices to significant conversations happening in the community through their tweets.

Therapy for Black Girls

A 2018 study found that more than 300 black Americans killed by police each year in the U.S. have a negative impact on the mental health of the general black American community.

Yet, therapy has long been stigmatized in black culture, and the cost of therapy services also has a big impact on how often black individuals seek mental health care.

Therapy for Black Girls steps in to help with that: It’s an online group that not only de-stigmatizes but also supports black women’s mental well-being. It has a podcast, an Instagram feed with advice, and a Facebook page.

You can locate a therapist who has a natural understanding of the complex emotions and experiences that come with navigating the world as a black woman by using the Therapy for Black Girls directory.
