We are changing the narrative of black
millennials in mainstream media.

Combining user generated editorial content, original video, and a custom designed backend, we’re disrupting traditional models of media and putting the power back in the hands of black millennials to own their story and share their perspective. We believe everyone should have a seat at the table, and the conversation should never stop.


Our vision is to economically and creatively support Black millennials across the African diaspora, so they can pursue the work they love, and change the world in the process.
