The Vision

The Urban Culturist is a venture of Brown Girl For The Arts Media; The Urban Culturist includes the digital magazine, newsletter and social media platforms.

Brown Girl For The Arts Media is brought to you by a strong, smart, knowledgeable and hilarious team of “millennials”. We are committed to broadening the sluggishly changing narrative of pan-Africans in the United States through access, exposure and representation in the Arts. Our vision is to become a leading oasis for woke, smart and ambitious women and men by providing engaging online content, new valuable opportunities and cultural experiences to gather, grow, create and be empowered.

Our platforms publicize resources in music, fashion, books, movies, dance, television, theater, video, design and the culinary arts. In addition, The Urban Culturist provides an event guide of new and  diverse cultural highlights taking place in the New York City area.

BGFTA shares opportunities to appreciate Art and Culture not often experienced by people of color in America, while proactively promoting and supporting our promising local and international artists of color.
