Depop Announces Partnership With Black in Fashion Council

This Black History Month, Gen Z’s favorite shopping app, Depop, is partnering with the Black in Fashion Council to educate, empower, and celebrate Black entrepreneurs. Kicking off with a YouTube series on February 16, the program will feature a network of notable Black professionals from BIFC discussing creativity, finance, influencer marketing, retail, and more.

Last June, when people hit the streets and social media to protest against racial injustice, Depop took time to reflect on how it could give back to the diverse community that supports it and made a commitment to provide a more fulfilling, comforting, and inviting experience for the Black community on the platform and in the company. With a goal of making systemic improvements and building up the Black community in fashion, the brand will offer educational resources for growing a successful business and increasing the visibility of Black entrepreneurs.

Kamala Harris’s Ascent Doesn’t Mean Progress for Black Women



Despite everything we do and accomplish, Malcolm X’s words still ring true:“The most disrespected person in America is the Black woman.”

Despite everything we do and accomplish, Malcolm X’s words still ring true:“The most disrespected person in America is the Black woman.”

As a Black woman, I take immense pride in Vice President Kamala Harris’s victory. I beamed as she took her oath of office in a stunning purple dress and coat—a nod to unity and Shirley Chisholm>>>P, the first Black woman to run for president. I felt like I was watching the best of what this nation has to offer. But I am also reticent. Being a Black woman means experiencing perpetual whiplash: overwhelming highs and devastating lows before you can even get your bearings.

Right now, Black women seem to be thriving. Across America, they’ve become the most educated demographic and the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs>>>P. With every election cycle, we’re reminded of their power: Black women organizers were pivotal to Joe Biden’s

These Brands Don’t Want Your Black Friday Business

This Black Friday, as brands slash prices! and trumpet the best deals! and big savings!, one company is taking a very different route. Sneaker brand Allbirds is actually increasing its prices. 

Every product will be $1 more expensive on Friday, with all the extra money raised going to Fridays For Future, the climate movement founded by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg

“Black Friday deals may satiate momentary desire,” Allbirds said in a statement, “but their impact on the planet is a lot more long-lasting.”

The move may seem an act of self-sabotage, but a spokesperson for the company ― which spotlights its environmental credentials ― told HuffPost, “Our hope is that one small price increase can spark a conversation about the larger environmental issues facing the fashion industry and beyond.” 

Black Friday is traditionally one of the year’s biggest shopping days. Online sales last year totaled $7.4 billion
