Facebook to Support Black Gaming Community Through $10 Million USD Investment

Black creators are now eligible to apply for the Facebook Gaming partnership.

Facebook has announced a brand new initiative specifically for the Black gaming community: the Black Gaming Creator Program. As part of its $200 million USD commitment to support Black-owned businesses and organizations, the tech giant will invest $10 million USD for the next two years ($5 million USD each year) in its program. Leo Olebe, Global Director Games Partnerships at Facebook, said in a statement:

“Earlier this year, we committed $200 million USD to support Black-owned businesses and organizations, part of a broader $1.1 billion USD investment in Black and diverse suppliers and communities in the United States. As part of these efforts, Facebook Gaming has committed an additional $10 million USD over two years to support the Black community of gaming creators. Game streaming brings people together in a powerful way over a shared passion for games, and we hope to encourage more people to express their creativity through gaming.”

Those selected to take part in the Black Gaming Creator Program will receive a Facebook Gaming partnership, early access to new streaming features, community support and more. In addition, the initiative will provide bi-monthly summits focused on mentorship and training, as well as guaranteed monthly pay.

For those interested in applying, head over to Facebook’s website for more information.
