11 Females You Should Be Following on Instagram Right Now

Below, I have listed 11 of my favourite Instagram feeds from non-white females.  A portion of the 11 – I have been following forever. Most however are brand-new, fresh + exciting.

While I have discovered many of these females via the power of Instagram, the likes of: Lina Mar’s Youtube channel, Adrienne’s Power Hour Podcast and Morgan’s writing via Women’s Health Magazine – have been on my radar before their ‘grams.  Browse below and discover your new favourite accounts.  There’s health and fitness gurus, smoothie makers, interior designers and more.

Diversify your feed!  Make an effort to engage!  Pull up + call out! Support ads!  Do better!  I’m trying: you should, too.

Above each feed offering – I have linked other mediums of social and business pages too.

I wasn’t going to post at all for the next few days. But then I had to think about why that was, and why I suddenly felt the need to retreat when visibility within this industry, is something I have been screaming about fora while … There’s a lot more still to be said, but I really do feel all captioned out and in need of a re-fuel. I really loved @stephanieyeboah post today and @iamkristabel live though so if you have a moment, please check then out ❤️ . Thanks to everyone tagging and sharing my feed. But I should probably make this clear (again), I’m neither a full time activist or educator on racial matters. I am a Black Muslim though so my experiences will of course always cross over. Interiors and making stuff is my gig. And I like yellow 👀

✊🏾In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be antiracist.” — Angela Davis⠀ ⠀ This weekend, I had to log off. I logged off all social media because the weight of all of it was too much.⠀ ⠀ There's also some personal things that piled on top of everything happening in our country.⠀ ⠀ Not only are we killed by police, it's normative for images and videos of our murders to be passed around social media.⠀ ⠀ Ya'll its seriously traumatizing. Black people are constantly exposed to trauma on a personal and societal level.⠀ ⠀ My whole life is fueled by trauma. ⠀ ⠀ My DMs are currently filled with people asking what they can do, and I am SO thankful that y'all want to know, but right now I don't have the mental capacity to educate people about how to be antiracist. I can however, share my experiences and how that has affected me and provide some resources that can help you learn more.⠀ ⠀ Please, educate yourselves. There are many materials and tools you can find with a Google search. There are many people who are antiracism activists here on this platform⠀ ⠀ I want to encourgage you all to instead of turning to black people that you know and asking them how not to be racist:⠀ ⠀ ✔ Check on them. Ask them how they are mentally. (Beause I am personally not ok)⠀ ⠀ ✔Assure them you stand with them, and then do the work on your own.⠀ ⠀ ✔ Find local groups and donate. ⠀ ⠀ I'm not telling you to NEVER have these conversations with black people you know, because they are beneficial. I just want you to understand that we are dealing with very human emotions. I've cried so many tears this week and felt a myriad of things. Sometimes, we just need to process.⠀ ⠀ And those that are influencers, please do not just use this current movement just for content. ⠀ ⠀ If you stand with us, keep standing a month, six months and a year from now.⠀ ⠀ Drop me a ✊🏾 (in your on skintone 🙃) if you plan to educate yourself and take a stand.

Hi 👋🏾 I cannot believe how many new faces there are around here, I feel so overwhelmed with love and I thought it was about time I introduced myself properly after taking a couple days off to take care of myself ✨ My name’s Karina (a lot of people call me Kreens for short), I’m half Jamaican, a quarter Nigerian and a quarter English, born and raised in Bristol. I live with my husband Pete and our seven month-old cockapoo, Cooper who seems to be going through a rebellious teen phase. I studied broadcast journalism and started my blog thestyleidealist.com whilst in a toxic workplace six years ago. After being made redundant from my job in February, I decided to take a leap of faith and now work as a self-employed content creator, writer and freelance social media manager for small independent brands. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m pretty vocal about the highs and lows of my self development journey, building my confidence and of course fashion. My love for midi dresses knows no bounds and I love experimenting with colour – there’s no colour I’ll shy away from tbh. I flit between high-street pieces and considered investment pieces but overall, if it’s good quality, I’m here for it. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ To all my new followers, I am by no means an activist. I’m just a 32 year old girl who loves fashion, good food, great wine and strongly believes in (and will fight for) representation and inclusivity. I can’t lie, I feel scared thinking about what’s going to happen next, will people do what they say and say what they mean or will this all be forgotten about? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Regardless, I’ve seen the power of using my voice as a black woman and that is something I want to hold on to forever. The feeling of being seen and heard after years of feeling invisible…⁣ ⁣⁣ Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following me and to everyone who brought you here. Thank you for standing with me, for listening, encouraging, sharing and supporting me. Because as you know, this hasn’t been easy. It’s been extremely emotional and it’s brought up a lot of trauma, pain and sadness in me. But I really hope this is it. 2020, the year for seeing clearly… This is the change we needed. I welcome it and I welcome you ❤️

there’s a lot of new faces around and that’s obviously cos a couple of my posts got a bit of attention this week and i was also tagged in a lot of stories to encourage you to follow Black creators. i wanna let you know that i’m not here to entertain you or make you feel better cos you “diversified” your feed – i am a person and i work hard on my content and enjoy curating it. i wanted to introduce myself properly to all of you new people; my name is demi, i’m a blogger, veterinary nurse and law student. i write about veganism, beauty and lifestyle and due to my existence being political, i also discuss race. i used to write about this on my blog and ig but due to the abuse i received via dms and emails and fake accounts harassing me as well as the labour it took to research and write the posts, i decided to take move it to patreon instead. there’s no obligation to sign up so don’t feel you have to and if you want to stay for the cute stuff, that’s fine too. just know what i’m about. i am NOT an educator, everything i write about is my own experience and opinion. you can be here, but there are house rules (below):
