The Geekset Podcast is lending its platform to highlight voices in the Blerd community. The word “Blerd” is the portmanteau term for “Black Nerd”. As they discuss Black History Month, the question, “what does it mean for Black creatives?”
What makes us proud to Black and what’s the first thing we think of when associating Blerd Culture with the month of February. Curated by Geekset but brought to you by the culture!
From Rudy (@Young_Deuces) of Geekset Podcast: “This project was by far my favorite project to embark on. Not only did I put something together for us and by us, but I got to have amazing conversations with people of the community from all walks of life. I love the transparency I got, I love the realness I got, I love the inclusion of this video with people from all walks of life and all areas of the Blerd Community. I love what’s to come from it because this is truly the start., my plan and goal is to normalize seeing all of these people together, whether its two of us or fifty. I want collaborative efforts to happen on every platform far beyond Black History Month and the great thing is everyone in this video is on the same page. We all share the same sentiment and I believe you will see even more from this community in a BIG way!”
