Spotify Shows & Editorial Fellowship, Black History & Culture

This March, Spotify will celebrate and amplify the voices of Black creators beyond February with the launch of Black History Is Happening Now. Through Black History is Happening Now, artists will tell stories and raise topics that are important to them through video, podcasts and music curation. We’ll be paying tribute to the musicians who have paved the way, and the artists who will define what’s next. Because the artists making music today are making history. In tandem with this new original content, Spotify is also announcing a slate of programs that will support communities of color in reaching towards equity in the music and podcast industry.
