YouTube Originals’ Black Renaissance to Highlight Desus & Mero, Nicole Byer, and Ziwe Fumudoh

YouTube’s move for Black History Month is to have an entire special to shining a light on the black innovators and leaders of our time, Black Renaissance: The Art and Soul of our Stories. So many different black folks will be have their story told in what should by a highly and tightly produced showcase of black excellence now and what it will very likely be in the near future.

For comedy, the special will be focusingn on late night disruptors Desus & Mero, beloved multi-hyphenate Nicole Byer, and upstart icon Ziwe Fumudoh, all four of which are some of our absolute favorites in comedy and should be more touted and awarded and hired than they currently are (which is quite a bit).

Look for Black Renaissance: The Art and Soul of our Stories to premiere on YouTube’s YouTube Originals channel on Feb. 26th (right before Black History Month ends) and get a taste of what’s to come in this trailer here.
