Amplifying Black Voices Through Twitter

Standard
Some of these accounts I have been following for years, and some I just discovered. Some are better than others. I don’t agree 100% with all their tweets/posts. This is just my list of follows to get you started. It should be noted that there are many allies that I have not included in this first list. I wanted this to be strictly black voices. Any that you would like to add, please put in comments and I can include them in the future. Abby D Phillip – Journalist Akilah Hughes April D Ryan – Journalist Ava DuVernay Rep.
