Meet all of the amazing individuals that are contributing to the Black excellence of this event:

Amber Hurt

All Black Everything Creator

Amber Hurt is an educator, brunch lover and full of wanderlust. She created The Adulting Queen in January 2019 because no one teaches you how to be an adult and it's very ghetto here. Through navigating her own life she hopes to provide inspiration to others to live their best, healthy, authentic lives.

All Black Everything was born in the midst of the pandemic to celebrate her birthday and highlight the Black joy, excellence, tenacity, brilliance, melanin, awesomeness (we could go on forever, but you get the point) of Black people during a time where the world was continuing to tear us down. Amber has carefully put together the group of individuals contributing to the event based on their diverse backgrounds and commitment to sharing Black stories.
