Alexis Ohanian is the co-founder of Reddit and husband to tennis superstar Serena Williams. He stepped down from the Reddit board last week and asked to be replaced by a Black candidate. He also donated $1 million to former NFL player and activist Colin Kaepernick’s education organization “Know Your Rights Camp”.
Michael Seibel has been appointed as Ohanian’s replacement and he is the first Black board member at Reddit. He’s advised and funded 2000 startups and was the co-founder of streaming service justin.tv which went on to become Twitch.
