DREAMFINDERS: Shawn Rosell on Evolving as a Vlogger & Disney’s Place in Black Culture

Shawn Rosell isn’t trying to be like every other vlogger who loves Disney and in fact, after moving away from Orlando, he knew his channel couldn’t just be park visits like so many others. These days, it’s a mix of short films, Disney opinions, thoughts on life and his unique perspective of being a black vlogger who began his Youtube journey in a theme park culture that is predominantly white.

Shawn sat down with host Nathan Hartman to chat about being a shy guy who has found himself not only on the theater stage, but in the wrestling ring, how he found his voice as a vlogger, and his thoughts on Disney’s relationship with black culture.
