Black History Month: AI-Generated Ad Challenge

March 7, 2023

This year’s Black History Month theme was Black Resistance. Established by the ASALH, Black resistance explores how African Americans have resisted historic and ongoing oppression in the United States. By resisting, African Americans continue to mobilize resources and shape social movements to create a space for Black Americans to thrive. 

In honor of Black History month this year, we focused on Black futures in recognition that Black peoples’ continued existence is an act of Black Resistance. Black futures offer a forward-looking view of Blackness in America. So, we challenged our people to use generative AI technology (e.g, text-based like ChatGPT, visual-based like Dall-e or any gen AI tool you choose) to create an ad for Black History Month that leans into this year’s topic, Black Resistance with a focus on Black futures.
