The Black Canadian Creator Directory | 550+ Black Content Creators!


Last updated on January 29th, 2024 at 12:01 am


The Black Canadian Creator Directory is a collaborative effort between Casey Palmer of Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad, Kaya Marriott of Comfy Girl with Curls, and Sherley Joseph of The Chonilla Network!


Why do we need to die just to get everyone’s attention?

There are more Black Canadian content creators than you think—let us tell you a bit ABOUT them!

Before George Floyd’s murder on May 25th, 2020, it felt like so many Black creators needed to be creators first and Black people second. Though the issues we face today were just as prevalent before the nine minutes and twenty-nine seconds that’d change the world forever, it never felt like we could talk about such a fundamental part of our identities and be successful as creators—we often needed to choose one or the other because no one wanted to hear our painful truths. But in the months that followed the footage of George Floyd in the last excruciating moments of his life, Black stories were sought out like never before, with a number of us ready to tell them.

But as brands looked to work with us and people looked to amplify our voices, we kept hearing the same stories about our peers—that Black Canadian creators were hard to find. That there aren’t enough Black people north of the border to even bother marketing to us. We creators knew different, though. We’d met countless other Black creators at events and knew that there were more than just a few of us—we just didn’t have anywhere to show everyone else the things that we already knew.

Until now.

Presenting: The Black Canadian Creator Directory, featuring 550+ Black Canadian creators doing their thing!

Here’s the thing—as creators, we’ve grown far too reliant on the digital tools that’re handed to us instead of trying to innovate and do anything that really goes against the grain. We look to game the system—if we can only get good enough at using these tools, with their hashtags and algorithms, enough hard work will eventually take us to the top.

But the internet is a fluid space with ever-infinite possibilities, which means that we can ultimately be in control of the way we show up online.

Which is why I thought it was long overdue to create a comprehensive list of the Black Canadian creators in our nation and put our collective Black excellence all in one place instead of scattering it all over the internet and only telling part of our story.

It’s not the first list like it—I took inspiration from lists like Toni Fifi’s list of fourteen Black Canadian women bloggers to follow in November 2019 and Kaya’s list of thirty Black Canadian women creators a few months after that, but as I did my research, I found Black Canadian creators numbering in the hundreds, and that I needed to find a good way to showcase them all. So I partnered with my good friends Kaya Marriott from Comfy Girl with Curls and Sherley Joseph, founder of Black Canadian Creators and The Chonilla Network put together the Black Canadian Creator Directory—the celebration of the hundreds of Black creators we have in the Great White North and the perspectives they bring to this country.

Why the Black Canadian Creator Directory is IMPORTANT.

But you ask why all of this is important? Why do we need to work harder at giving Black creators some shine? It’s because we put so much of ourselves into our work, yet the world never sees us unless they’re ready to hear. And it’s no secret that Black creators rarely get their dues regarding their work. Black teens who use Instagram and Snapchat way more than their non-Black peers. Black creators’ dances blatantly ripped off on TikTok in repeated and remorseless cultural appropriation. Our Black creators have always brought something different to the table for decades—if not centuries—only to feel left behind in the dust as others claim fame from our work.

And I’d like to stop all that, at least up here in Canada, where at just more than 4% of the population it’s already hard enough to be seen. Our nation won’t recognise our influence through social media alone, so we needed something that shows just how many Black Canadian creators are out here doing the damn thing—and that’s what the Black Canadian Creator Directory is all about!

We have Black bloggers. Black vloggers. Black Instagrammers, filmmakers and more—the list we have is only a start… there’s always more of us to find every time you want to connect with us and add some more melanin to the mix!

I hope the list proves as eye-opening to you as it did to us while we made it, and make sure to share it with other creators you want to see added—inclusion’s just a Google Form away!

The Black Canadian Creator Directory | Making Waves Across Our Nation!

But the Black Canadian Creator Directory’s story doesn’t stop there—we put the Directory into the world to try and change things, not just to get it done and call it a day, and we’ve been talking about it ever since! You can check out the press release we put out or even the article I wrote about it for Daddy’s Digest, but I’m not the only one out here spreading the good news!

The Sherley and Clove Podcast

On the January 23rd episode of The Sherley and Clove Podcast on Twitch, Sherley thoroughly explained why the Directory is so important to her and why it’s changing the game for Black Canadian content creators across our nation!

Introverted Queen Podcast

On the January 30th episode of the Introverted Queen Podcast, Kaya spent a few minutes discussing what the Directory means to her and what she hopes to see come from introducing it to the world!

Black Canadian Creators Podcast

On February 1st, Sherley relaunched the Black Canadian Creator Podcast for a second season, bringing all three of us together to discuss the Directory and the path to us getting there!

CityTV Breakfast Television | Approaching the Topic of Black History with Your Kids

On February 3rd, I got the chance to sit with Frank Ferragine on CityTV’s Breakfast Television, where we got to discuss talking to our kids about Black history, and the chance to share a little about the Black Canadian Creator Directory on national television!

The Victory Speaks Show | Keeping it Real with Black Canadian Content Creators

And on February 28th, to close out Black History Month, Sherley and I sat with our good friend Nicole Waldron, host of The Victory Speaks Show, to discuss—among other things—not only our approach to creating the Directory, but also the impact it’s had for the Black Canadian creator community and the places we’d love to see it go next. It was a spirited conversation that went in many different directions, but it should make for a nice evening listen if it ever strikes your fancy!

More to Come!

We’ve also seen mentions of the Directory in places like Broadcast Dialogue and on Minto’s Live Better Blog!

But that’s not the end of it—as we go farther into Black History Month and continue to spread the word, expect it to keep popping up everywhere we can get it! I’ve also written a post on all the things we want to accomplish with the Directory—make sure to check it out!

The featured image for The Black Canadian Creator Directory: What's Next, a tool co-created by Casey Palmer, Kaya Marriott and Sherley Joseph, looking for the next steps now that it's out into the world.
The Black Canadian Creator Directory was only the beginning—let’s find out what happens next!

We hope you find the Directory useful!
