It was on the YouTube channel “The Grapevine” when I first discovered JustLatasha. Of course, all of the panelists and the host Ashley Akunna were bright, talented and intelligent people I admired but for some reason Lastaha was my favorite out of the bunch. I resonate with her mix of quirky and intellectual, her ability to speak out about the things she thought were harmful to the Black community and even her style were all major reasons why she was my fav. I wanted to know more of her background and so I did some digging and found a well rounded creative who can practically do everything.
Each year I am always looking for new creatives to support and follow and 2021 is no exception even if the year did just began. It’s always so amazing to know there are so many creatives out there doing amazing things, sometimes with no following or support. I want to use my platform as a way to highlight creatives who are out there putting in work and creating beautiful things. Here are some of my favorite creatives that you should follow in 2021.
