Black Creators To Read, Watch, Follow

In light of recent events in the US, we're handling things a bit differently.

On June 1, GameSpot began hosting Play For All--a celebration of all things gaming. We asked that you join us as we bring you the summer's hottest news, previews, interviews, features, and videos, as well as raise money for COVID-19 relief with the help of our friends from around the gaming world. But we're also taking this opportunity to state our support for the recent protests that have popped up across the US in response to the continued police brutality against black people.

To that end, GameSpot would like to highlight black creators in our industry, whether they specialize in writing video essays, producing hard-hitting articles, or hosting good podcasts. Below, we've listed the work of notable black creators--regardless of whether or not they work at GameSpot. We hope you'll take a few moments to read and watch them and maybe gain a new perspective into your favorite video games. And keep checking this page, as we'll continue to update it with more voices over the coming days and weeks.

A current initiative to note is Wellness Week from Black Girl Gamers, which is happening now until June 7 (see their streaming schedule here). It's a series of relaxing streams from several black women streamers in an effort to raise money for Color of Change and The Bail Project. They will also be having the Black Girl Gamers Online Summit on June 13 which will features keynotes and panels throughout that day. For more, be sure to get the details on what Black Girl Gamers is doing.
