Each week throughout Black History Month, we'll celebrate Black creators using their platforms to move the culture forward by telling Black stories and amplifying Black voices. On Wednesday February 24th, we're bringing the fourth and final installment in our #GenBlack is Unapologetic series of Instagram Live Q&As with Temi Coker, a Nigerian-born, Texas-based digital media creative, designer and multidisciplinary artist. Temi has collaborated with some of the world’s most influential brands, and he has cultivated a large community around his vibrant, Afrocentric, and culturally authentic designs. Temi will be sharing the inspiration behind his compelling designs, how he got on the path to where he is today, working with multinational brands, including Facebook, and how he has been able to leverage his platform to uplift the Black community and other Black creators.
