Black people influence culture – just look at top trends on Twitter, rankings of the latest songs or open Vine to see the most popular dances. As access to technology has increased, new outlets for Black creatives have made it possible for us to regain control of narratives and create stories that reflect our shared experiences.

In Oakland, the Museum of the African Diaspora Vanguard (MoAD) will be holding a panel of black creatives who are breaking down conventional barriers and creating art that spans a variety of different fields and forms. Check out their panelist below and RSVP to their event.
