About Evelyn From the Internets

Evelyn From The Internets invites you to “her crevice of the internet.” From beauty tutorials to cultural critiques, the Austin-based YouTuber inspires and entertains fans through diverse YouTube dialogues and ever-present humor. After her Lemonade YouTube video got sampled by Beyonce for the Formation World Tour, Evelyn’s exposure has increased, with “Bey’s Blessing” nabbing her thousands of subscribers (or “Internet Cousins” as she says) and feminist speaking engagements. Addressing problematic black portrayals in the media through videos, including “7 More Questions BuzzFeed Should Ask Black People,” Evelyn launched her #MagicalBlackGirl movement and @ATXWhileBlack story series to shift problematic discourse and promote “black people doing amazing things.”
