Meet movement director and advocate Sherrie Silver (@sherriesilver). She’s best known for her work choreographing Childish Gambino’s iconic “This Is America” video, but has dedicated her life to giving back to others around the world — especially in Rwanda, where Sherrie was born.⁣ ⁣ “Imagine if every single human got up and did a positive thing — even just give a compliment to somebody. How beautiful and bright the world would be,” says Sherrie, who splits her time between the US and the UK. “I want people to know that, as Black people, there is so much power in knowing what you can bring to the table, and bringing other people with you is even more important, doing it as a community.”⁣ ⁣ “I #ShareBlackStories by sharing the stories and talents of different dancers around the world and the amazing things that they do,” Sherrie says. Learn more about Sherrie’s life and work, today on our story and new to our IGTV. ✨⁣ ⁣ This Black History Month, we’ve partnered with @bet to #ShareBlackStories and support #Advocates doing amazing work on Instagram and beyond. New episodes drop every Tuesday in February. 🖤
For professional scooter rider Vincent Kudrna (@vincentkudrna), scootering is liberating. “I don’t have any coaches telling me what to do or where I need to be. What I do on a scooter is truly all up to me,” says the San Diego native. “I really connected with scootering because it combines all the best aspects of other action sports. You can grind like a skateboarder with the deck, do tail whips and bar spins like a BMX biker, and you can spin and move quickly like a Rollerblader,” he says. #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣

Meet 21-year-old photographer and director Myles Loftin (@mylesloftin), an advocate for sharing stories of underrepresented communities and stories. “Probably more often than not I would say that I felt like an outsider in spaces. And I guess maybe that’s why I’m so passionate about making sure that people feel seen, because I know what it feels like to not be seen and to not feel comfortable in a space,” says the Parsons School of Design student.⁣
⁣
“I #ShareBlackStories through my photography, making sure to highlight the Black community as much as I can,” says Myles. “Also just through me existing. I am a Black story walking.”⁣

“I feel like being a Black man in America, there are a lot of expectations that are put on you. Expectations about the way you should act in public, the way you should express your sexuality, the way you should dress — and it can often be a lot of pressure,” says 21-year-old photographer, director and student Myles Loftin. ⁣
⁣
“But I also think that being a Black man in America means that there’s a lot of possibility. At least right now I’m seeing a lot of possibility for myself and for the members of my community to exist freely. And I feel like we’re really taking advantage of that right now in a really positive way.”⁣

As a young motocross racer, Adam Jones (@adamjones760) practiced for his professional freestyle career long before he knew it would be his path.⁣
⁣
“My favorite part of racing used to be doing the biggest jumps I could on all the tracks,” says the eight-time X Games medalist, who is known for his signature backflip combinations. “I’ve always loved being in the air.” #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣

Ricky Glaser (@rickyglaser) regularly skates the many (skate) parks of his native Melbourne, but he loves to skate out in the streets, too. “Finding obstacles not designed for skating on can be a fun challenge and spark new creative ideas,” says the 28-year-old professional skateboarder, who has been skating since the age of 8. “When you’ve skated for as long as I have and have done so many different tricks, it can be fun to completely change your approach with an external prop like a skipping rope,” he says. 🛹#ThisWeekOnInstagram ⁣ ⁣
