Black Women Activists and Stars to Run White Stars’ Instragram Accounts for #ShareTheMicNow Campaign
All day Wednesday, dozens of prominent Black women in Hollywood, fashion, business, literature and political activism will be taking over the Instagram accounts of white women including Julia Roberts and Elizabeth Warren, as part of the #ShareTheMicNow campaign, which aims to amplify the voices and stories of Black women.

Created by Bozoma Saint John, Cmo at Endeavor, fashion designer Stacey Bende, and bestselling writers Luvvie Ajayi Jones and Glennon Doyle, the campaign will see 46 Black women run the accounts of 46 white women. “When the world listens to women, it listens to white women.

We need to listen to Black women.

#ShareTheMicNow Campaign Seeks To Magnify The Voices Of Black Women On Instagram
An Instagram campaign dubbed #ShareTheMicNow, launching tomorrow, will seek to magnify the voices of Black women on social media in conjunction with the nationwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism following George Floyd's death.

The aim of the campaign is to foster dialogue about race and to help Black creators to reach audiences they might not otherwise encounter, Forbes reports.

The campaign was brought to life by Bozoma Saint John, a businesswoman and the current chief marketing officer of Endeavor; Luvvie Ajayi Jones, a New York Times bestselling author and podcast host; Glennon Doyle, a New York Times bestselling author and the founder of Together Rising; and Stacey Bendet, CEO and creative director of Alice + Olivia.

Kourtney Kardashian Goes Nude With Emily Ratajkowski - but Not Quite Like Kim Did
Kourtney Kardashian stepped out for a stylish night in La on Wednesday. The reality TV star attended the Alice + Olivia runway show in Hollywood and looked chic in a nude-colored suede dress from the collection.

She and her sisters (as well as her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick and their kids) took to the slopes for some skiing and snowboarding.
