The webinar will be co-hosted by Music Week journalist Colleen Harris and YouTube’s Sheniece Charway. It will be available to view from November 21.
The Legacy Series: Gifted & Black - Women In Music x YouTube will launch here this week with the first of eight interviewees - Jordss, founder of Girls Can’t DJ and Black Joy Archives.
And look out for upcoming interviews with Whitney Asomani, co-founder of the Twenty:Two agency; producer and hitmaker CeeBeaats, who’s worked with artists and producers including AJ Tracey, Digga D and and Tiffany Calver; and Saffron Records founder and CEO Laura Lewis-Paul, who was recently nominated for an AIM Award.
Sheniece Charway, YouTube Music’s artist relations manager, said: “We are first hand witnesses to the incredible work that Black women in the industry do all year round, so it's a pleasure to be partnering once again with Music Week in order to give recognition to them and shout loud about their achievements."
