Black Girl Digital Celebrates 2nd Annual Awards Show Honoring Trailblazing Creators

Atlanta, GA – November 9, 2023 – Black Girl Digital, the distinctive melanated influencer marketing agency, is excited to announce the successful conclusion of its highly anticipated 2nd Annual Black Girl Digital Awards Show, presented by Walt Disney World. Hosted by renowned beauty and lifestyle influencers Crystal Herry and Tiarra Monet , the event took place at The Stave Room in Atlanta, Georgia, which looked stunning, beautifully decorated by Presume Experiential Productions, expertly organized by The BBM Agency, and streaming production by Catscape Productions, making it a magical experience for everyone present. The awards ceremony was preceded by a vibrant Pre-award show hosted by YouTube at Anasi Lounge and Bar on Saturday, November 4th. 

With the rapidly growing content creation industry valued at $250 billion globally, millions of Americans have opted out of old-fashioned employment to become part of the creator economy. As a result of this shift, the global influencer marketing market value has risen to 21.1 billion U.S. dollars as of 2023, which happens to be more than triple of what was reported in 2019. Unfortunately, research conducted by MSL has revealed a concerning racial pay gap of 29% between white influencers and their melanated counterparts. Despite these disparities, organizations like Black Girl Digital and Black Girl Digital Awards have emerged as influential pillars, advocating for and highlighting the achievements of Black female influencers.
