To celebrate Black History Month, TikTok has teamed up with seasoned R&B artist Ashanti. The company will celebrate Black creators and reflect on the substantial contributions African-Americans made to history and culture. Tonight at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST, Verzuz alumni R&B diva Ashanti will go live on her TikTok page with Jax James (TikTok creator and activist). The influential pair will discuss an array of things like the state of R&B, what they want to see the Black community achieve, and more. If you’re around tonight, please, tune in with us to #MakeBlackHistory with TikTok.
