Black entrepreneur launches "Switch Fresh" replaceable deodorant, reducing plastic waste by 96 percent

Posted on March 23, 2017 at 11:42am 0 Comments

Buying a plastic bottle that isn't biodegradable nor completely full to begin with, then throwing it in the trash each month probably isn't the greatest thing for the environment.

Photo Series: "Pure Black" challenges limitations around Blackness

Posted on March 22, 2017 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Hey! I really appreciate the feature you wrote! Do you think you could edit the sentence RXMXT identifies as a genderqueer demiboy, asexual and panromantic to just RXMXT identifies as queer? Thank you so much!

You published a featured article today about #MelaninMonday. Credit for Melanin Monday should be given to bonitaapplebelle from tumblr, not Young Paris. She created it first and started a movement on the site within the black community and he took the name and started plastering 'Melanin' on photos. Please give proper credit where its due.
