Celebrating Black History Month

Black history is not only rich and expansive, it’s still being made today. Marmoset is celebrating Black history, this month and every month, by investing in the Black community, uplifting our Black artists, and working to improve our own DEI practices as an organization. 

Scroll down for a look at our community investments from 2021 that directly support the Black community, hear a selection of the Marmoset roster’s extrordinary Black talent in our Black Voices Matter mixtape, and check out some local and online events and resources that celebrate and uplift our Black neighbors. 

Over on Instagram, we’re planning to showcase some of our favorite Black History Month placements throughout February, so stay tuned for more. For information on Marmoset’s own DEI initiatives, check out our 2021 Annual Transparency Report here.


In 2021, Marmoset invested a total of $26,270 in organizations supporting both the local Portland Black community and beyond, including the Black Resilience Fund, Kairos PDX, Imagine Black, Black Film Space, and the SOU Black Student Scholarship Fund.
