In the past week, we’ve seen an inspiring outpouring of activism in all shapes and sizes — protesting, calling representatives, voting, supporting Black creators and entrepreneurs, and the list goes on. It’s been a motivating time to look at the ways we can all consider our impact and make necessary changes. One of the ways we’re starting is by highlighting Black artists, venues, and hosts in the Sofar community.
