Good Community: Supporting the Next Generation in Gaming during Black History Month

3 min readFeb 15, 2023


Welcome to 2023, and our newest installment of #GoodCommunity — a blog series where we explore what it means to create and participate in meaningful connections within our communities, big or small.

Building a #GoodCommunity takes a village. The groups we’re featuring this month are led and supported by Black professionals in gaming who want to empower the next generation. We’re excited to see the games industry growing and reflecting the diversity of our players and communities, and we want to shout out folks that are making that happen!
