Pinterest Celebrates Black History Month with Soul Food: Nourish Your Soul
Pinterest Launches Newest Pinterest TV Series in Partnership with Black Creators centered around the theme of Soul Food: Nourish Your Soul
For Black History Month, Pinterest is amplifying Black creator content through a Pinterest TV series focused around Nourishing Your Soul, working with inspiring creators across food, fashion, beauty and wellness, such as Kellie Brown, Bryant Terry, Nory Pouncil, Vallery Lomas, Tenicka Boyd and more. In addition to Pinterest TV, our Creator Inclusion team partnered with Black & Woman-owned agency The Creative Collective NYC to activate up-and-coming Black creators around the celebration of soul and nourishment.
