February marks the start of Mes de la Historia Negra in Canada and the United States. It’s a time not only to celebrate the rich history of black individuals, but to encourage more diversity and visibility in every social space. We’ve compiled a list of 6 talented black artists to watch in 2016, and hope that the creative community continues to grow more inclusive.
Whittling this list down to six is an almost impossible exercise. Tell us about your favorite artist of color on Twitter, and share in Black History Month.
