Off Colour is proud to announce that today marks the beginning of our feature series for Black History Month; Black Excellence in Gaming! Our team has been working hard to develop this written series that will run from February 15th through February 28th, with each day featuring a different Black creator who more than deserves a moment in the spotlight to highlight not only their work and achievements in the gaming scene but also a chance to share more about themselves and what they hope to achieve in 2021!
This goal for this segment began as a small idea to showcase just a few people but has now grown into a series of features based on the fantastic interviews we conducted with 14 Black creators currently working in the gaming scene. We were so lucky to have the opportunity to sit down and chat with a variety of gamers and creators, ranging from game reviewers, cosplayers, developers, live streamers, and many more! It was an inspirational and rewarding experience to be able to sit and chat with each and every person for this series. We hope that this will be the first of many features that we’ll be able to do not just during Black History Month but throughout the rest of the year as well.
Be sure to visit our Off Colour site and social media pages today and every day after until the end of February for a new piece featuring a different Black creator to learn more about them and what they do in gaming, as well as to show them some support and appreciation for all the work that they do. And remember to visit our page at the end of the month for our publication of all our transcribed interviews for you to read so we can close out our series with the words of our feature subjects themselves. We hope that you’ll enjoy reading this series just as much as we enjoyed putting it together for all of you!
