AT&T’s signature program, Black Future Makers, has returned in 2022, where they highlight economic empowerment in the Black community during Black History Month. This program is in its fourth year, and this year will highlight musicians such as John Legend and Kirk Franklin.
They recently did a photo shoot with actress Meagan Good, and she is also a part of the 2022 Class of Future Makers.
During the photo shoot, Good was asked what it meant to her to dream in Black.
“Dreaming in Black is specific to the skin I’m in,” Good said. “My dreams, part of it is who I am as a woman, but so much of it is because of the experiences I’ve had as a Black woman, specifically. Some of the things I dreamed for or desired were very specific and unique to my experiences.”
Good says that believing in who you are is a key part of dreaming in Black.
“Dreaming in Black to me is believing that you were created exactly who you are. Every single part of you, from your nose to your toes, is who you’re supposed to be and how you’re supposed to be, and you will do everything you’re supposed to do just because of who you are.”
