When people talk about the black culture from the 1990s thru the early 2000s the phrase, “The Golden Era” comes up a lot, and for good reason. It was a pretty special time. Hip Hop had come into its own and its music dominated not only the radio airwaves, but it was responsible for a total sonic, visual and cultural takeover.

From television shows like The Cosby Show, In Livin’ Color, and New York Undercover, to films like School Daze and Menace to Society, to clubs like The Tunnel and The Cheetah Club and conferences like “How Can I Be Down” and “Jack The Rapper”, the energy, vibe, and swagger of black culture globally dictated trends in fashion, sports, film, television, nightlife and more. And then there was the scene. A vibrant scene comprised of a community of like-minded folks working, playing, and creating this culture together. The movement enveloped mainstream culture in such a way that its aesthetic and vernacular became forever changed.

Fast forward to 2016.  Digital and virtual reality is replacing the tangible. The once human experience of exchanging ideas, discussing challenges, and cultivating the Black Cultural experience has begun to drastically change. CULTURE CREATORS was birthed to shine a light on the contributions of those who shaped the world’s view of the black culture  by providing a platform for ideation, conversation, mentorship and leadership for the next generation. Our mission is to ensure that the executive talent pool is diversified.

In addition to panel discussions, recruitment, networking sessions and mentoring, CULTURE CREATORS seeks to become the think-tank, talent incubator and hub for creatives and intellectuals who touch black culture in one form or another.
