This February is a powerful reminder that Black history is American history, Black culture is American culture, and Black stories are essential to the ongoing story of America – our faults, our struggles, our progress, and our aspirations.
At Bigo Live, we continue to honor diversity and inclusion by celebrating the contributions of the many Black creators in February and beyond. Through our platform, we seek to amplify their voices and spotlight their talents, creativity, accomplishments, and the myriad ways they enliven and enrich our online community.
Here are several African American Bigo Live creators and communities we’re proud to highlight today:
Dwight Allen O’Neal and Good Morning Bigo
Dwight Allen O’Neal is the face of Bigo Live and hosts an exclusive daytime talk show, “Good Morning Bigo,” delivering hot topics, career, and life motivation tips, Dwight is also an influencer, lifestyle and beauty expert, HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ activist, and award-winning director and producer.

Kimberly Steward and Black Cosplay

Today, she has built a 95,000-member strong community that is a truly diverse and inclusive group of cosplayers and cosplay lovers from all colors, creeds, shapes, backgrounds, and sizes.

Yardie and Beautiful Black Queens
Meet Yardie, born and raised in New York and always the life of the party. Also, the mind behind the Beautiful Black Queens community on Bigo Live, a judgement-free community for black women to post and interact. “When I first came to Bigo, I was looking for my tribe and when Bigo introduced the Community feature, I said this is my opportunity to start that tribe,” Yardie said.
She took inspiration from Angela Davis, “I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change; I’m changing the things I cannot accept.” This community is proud to be an OG community and welcomes all beautiful melanated people who are not a part of this experience to join today.
Bigo Live is proud to support Black content creators, artists, and influencers to create a space where their work can be shared and celebrated. Additionally, Bigo Live is hosting several special events to celebrate Black History Month, such as the themed Livehouse.
Together, let’s celebrate Black History Month and recognize African American stories and their contributions to our society. Join the conversation #OnBigo!
