14 Instagram Accounts For Blerd Girls Who Are Looking to Invigorate Their Timeline
Back in the day, "nerd" was one of the worst things someone could call you. Nowadays, there's a little piece of nerd pie for everyone to get in on. Folks are embracing their nerd-dom, and a lot of black people are claiming space in a community that we haven't always felt invited to. As blerds — aka black nerds — we've been building communities that center the black perspective on all things nerdy, whether that be anime, video games, or comic books.
As black women, it can be a little harder finding our ground in those communities, because there's still a stigma in being a nerdy woman — yes, this is where those pesky intersecting identities come into play. While there are definitely people and groups that appeal to all blerds, it's always nice to learn about the blerd women who are out there giving us the content we want and need. Ahead, we've rounded up a few Instagram accounts that will satisfy all your blerdy needs, and give you the community you've been looking for.
