While you’re enjoying Black History Month (in the US), why not some of the Black artists on Bandcamp some love.

Black Artist Database is a crowd-sourced list of Black artists on Bandcamp.

Black Artist Database (formerly known as Black Bandcamp) is a community-based platform, hosting a wealth of international Black-owned record labels, artists, producers and bands.

This crowd-sourced database provides an easy way to search, filter and directly support the creative output of Black artists globally, via their online profiles. The database is a continuous work-in-progress maintained by volunteers and paid administrators.

I found out about this as someone submitted me to it and that’s a great honour.
