Like millions of Americans, Ronnell Perry was thrust into the world of working from home full-time during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the midst of a global crisis, Perry discovered a silver lining: a way to celebrate his newly minted hybrid life of the domestic-work space. So he created the platform, Young & Black Working From Home, along with the hashtag #blackWFH. The platform helps Black millennials navigate the sometimes uncertain and awkward virtual workplace with humor, art and profound advice.
One week into the launch of blackWFH.com, the growing issues of racialized violence against African Americans boiled over. Now his platform is needed more than ever. Watch as Perry talks to Ark Republic about this timely venture.
