Watch: Angela Rye Says Black People Shift the Culture

We have a new video series here at The Root that we want to share with you all and it’s called Black and Proud. We get the chance to chat with a lot of our favorite black celebrities, tastemakers and thought leaders, so we decided to ask them about their pride around being black.

Many of them talk about our resilience and strength throughout history and some talk about our undeniable talents and others mention our dance skills, dopeness and more. Whatever the reasoning, it’s clear that being black is an incredible experience, despite society’s negative narratives around blackness.


Angela Rye has easily become one of the loudest and proudest black women voices in the zeitgeist right now. Her commentary, eye rolls and side eyes speak to all of us and have turned this noted political strategist into our collective #WokeBae. Rye says that she’s proud to be black because we’re basically the leaders of everything dope. Check out the clip above to see why else being black is lit for Angela Rye.

And stay tuned for a new Black and Proud clip every single week!
