Hey Black Tumblr! Here’s co-Creator @nukirk with some quick reminders on who we are, when the next #Blackout is, and how you can participate.

June 6th is the next Blackout Day. Now, you may be wondering “what is Blackout Day?” Well, we like to think of it as a chance to define and redefine blackness, because being you is very dynamic and ever changing, so why keep the idea static?
How you partake in this day? Simply post a photo of you.But let’s pause for a second. You don’t have a photo or you’re not photogenic? That’s alright, because the goal is to talk about blackness in your own way. So, you got artwork, a picture of the squad, your business associates, maybe a song or poem? Or a video of you doing something minor, awesome… or perhaps “extra?” Maybe you got a business or you freelance? How about a family, no matter how big or small? Siblings? Got a testimony to share? A story?
Okay, I could go on and on, but I think you’re getting the idea…If you’ve got nothing for this time around, prep for Sept 6th and in the meantime, share what other people are sharing. Discovering and uplifting others are just as important!
No matter if you’re light or dark, bi-racial or fully black, American, Caribbean, African…we’re here to celebrate ALL our people enjoying the beautiful complexity that is life.So make sure to get yourself ready for June 6th and make some time to Hashtag Blackout!
