On the podcast today we have Destiny Kanno and Joe Simpson. The goal of BlackPress is to bring more creators of Black African descent into the WordPress community, and also provide a community space for those already there to connect, learn from, and support each other. It’s still in the early stages and they are trying to grow with a dedicated Slack channel and regular Meetups. It’s intended to be a safe space for people who share their vision to work together and try to figure out what such a community might look like. It’s a really thought provoking discussion, and shines a light on a very important issue.
