Black Lives In Music launches to empower musicians and fight racism
A new organisation called Black Lives In Music has launched a data-driven mission to amplify and empower black musicians and professionals.
Black Lives In Music (BLIM) was co-founded by music branding, marketing and management expert and Help Musicians trustee Charisse Beaumont, alongside musician and teacher Roger Wilson, who has worked with James Brown, Dame Shirley Bassey, Michael Ball and more.
A press release said that BLIM’s key goals are to act as a catalyst for meaningful change, provide opportunities for musicians at grassroots level, support and empower black artists and advocate for equality in the music industry.
The organisation is to launch BLIM Experience Survey to research the issues black creatives faces across areas including racial discrimination, mental health, well-being and economic disparity. The results will be published in the first annual BLIM report in May 2021.
