'Do It Afraid. And If You Fail, Do It Again:' Black TikTok Influencers Encourage Aspiring Content Creators
Staying true to yourself was the resounding message shared during the Power of #BlackTikTok panel discussion featuring two of the platform’s most popular Black content creators, James Henry (@jameshenry) and Ariana Taylor (@arri.arii).
The two joined moderator and #BlackTikTok Creator Community Manager Alexzi Girma on the Wealth & Power Stage at the 2022 ESSENCE Festival of Culture in New Orleans, where they let the audience in on how they were able to not only find their voices on the platform, but also on how they continue to connect with their fanbases. As an aspiring actor, Henry was already comfortable being in front a camera before joining the platform, but he’s since found massive success thanks to his funny takes on everyday life, amassing 3.9 million followers and earning brand deals with Crocs, Doritos, Chipotle, and HP.
