For Black History Month 2020, dating app Bumble wanted to take the first step in igniting change by celebrating Black love together with over 30 Black British voices, who shared unscripted reflections on what love means to them in #MyLoveIsBlackLove.
Created in partnership with Metallic Inc and leading British voices, including Jourdan Dunn, George the Poet, Clara Amfo, Nicola Adams, MS Banks, David Whitely and many others, these stories focus on the joy of Black love. The campaign had a powerful effect in opening up the conversation about love within the Black community in the UK, whilst also exploring the many voices that make up the Black British identity.
