Future Black History Honors Jaboukie Young-White!

Our final #FutureBlackHistory honoree is none other than Jaboukie Young-White. When he’s not reporting as the resident Youth Correspondent on the ‘Daily Show’  or performing standup, the 25-year-old is taking down institutional oppression and the people who uphold it, one tweet at a time. 

Between his razor sharp wit, masterful use of memes, and a rare ability to use humor and find some humanity in near-apocalyptic times, Jaboukie is the voice of our generation.

For using his voice to advocate for the marginalized, always speaking truth to power, and giving us some much-needed levity and hope, Jaboukie is Future Black History.
