introducing blk beats
Y’all know we couldn’t end June without acknowledging Black Music History Month! Founded in 1979, this month shines a spotlight on the impact and the inspiration that Black music has contributed to American culture.
In celebration of Black Music History Month, our team curated a playlist featuring a selection of Black dance + house artists who kept us groovin all through June.

WHAT IS [BLK WINS]?
BLK WINS strives to be a direct resource for people, specifically Black youth, to discover and identify who we truly are, where we come from, and how we got here. Our aim is to not only educate our current generation, but to also pass this on to our future generations to come.
WHY IT WORKS
For Us, By Us
One of the biggest things that we want our audience to take away from this project is that this is something we made for each other—through the collective and relevant experiences of our history,
education, and lifestyle.
We will showcase our investigative research process by giving a "behind the scenes" look while conducting our
research and during our 1st-person interviews. We want viewers to feel like they're in the room with us during
interviews and will provide as many citations as possible in order to build trust and highlight our transparency.
Instead of being defined by our trauma, our aim is to switch the
narrative and highlight historical Black milestones. We want to
reignite that sense of pride for our race, and ultimately bridge the gap between our past and our present.
Our method is to disassociate from all the archaic ways our Black history has been presented and introduce a different approach that is
new, fresh, and even more relevant with how our target audience currently digests information.
