    #17 – Destiny Kanno and Joe Simpson on Why They Started BlackPress

    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.
