In honor of Black History Month this year, AT&T Dream in Black has presented the return of Black Future Makers – a celebration of inspirational people in the culture.

This celebration honors members of the community that inspire their peers around them to Dream in Black.

Honorees this year include entrepreneurs, activists, frontline workers, and more! This year’s Black Future Makers include creators such as H.E.R., Charlamagne Tha God, Angelica Ross, D-Nice, and Billy Porter.

Pose star, Billy Porter had this to say, “I am humbled to have been chosen as one of AT&T’s Black Future Makers.” Porter added, “If there’s one thing that I would say to those coming up, know your history, hone your craft and remember to always dream the impossible!”
