For Black History Month, we’d like to highlight some of the Black blogger pioneers that have changed the game online. As an African American mom and online influencer, these men and women have inspired me more than I can say. From food bloggers, to celebrated writers and intelligent entrepreneurs, these bloggers are deserving of the spotlight.

Today’s Black Blogger Pioneer is the talented Denene Millner.

If you don’t know Denene Millner from, you most definitely should. You should know her because she’s a NY Times Bestseller. Because her words will constantly fill your heart, ignite your mind, and shake your soul to the core.

My Brown Baby was the first website I found that had someone who looked like me at the helm. Denene didn’t just focus on Black parenting, but on our Black community as a whole. I immediately deemed the site as a resource for me during those first years as a young mom. My Brown Baby was a site that ended up slowly changing my life, and the lives of many others. It’s become a cornerstone for those of us that want to change our world through our writing, who just so happen to be Black. Today, on the first day of Black History Month, we celebrate Denene Millner. A Black Blogging Pioneer.
