Spotify has debuted its new Black History is Happening Now campaign to celebrate the spirit of Black History Month all year long. The campaign will spotlight artists, creatives, and organizations who are working to impart change and spread diversity. Each month a new artist will curate playlists, start conversations, and introduce other material for the hub. Janelle Monáe will serve as the first artist and told EW “I’ve always been excited and inspired to try to redefine how we’re seen. It’s important to me to celebrate  black history year round and with Spotify’s commitment to honoring the black community all year long and showcasing artists and organizations who are dedicated to imparting change.” Check out Monáe’s contribution to the hub and more here. Watch Monáe discuss Afrofuturism below.
