Thumbnail for Resources for Hiring and Celebrating Black Talent

At PRINT, we’re working on new editorial initiatives around black designers and designers of color. In the meantime, here are some excellent links for finding, hiring and celebrating black talent, along with a host of resources beyond the world of design. If you’re looking for ways to get involved—protesting, donating, volunteering—the latter half of this collection offers inroads to start. And overall, this list is a start, too—it is by no means comprehensive. We’ll be updating and adding links as we come across them. (Have one to add? Please send it our way.)

For much more, stop by this Google Doc by @botanicaldyke—covering everything from jail support and legal services to advice for protesting, low-cost ways to support Black Lives Matter and even international resources.
