We have an announcement. We are launching a new creative vertical within Annenberg Media. And it is Black-driven.
About damn time.
As Black journalists, we stand upon the foundation laid by those who came before us. Frederick Douglass. Samuel Cornish. Ida B. Wells. Robert Abbott. They and so many proved the might of the pen, openly and authentically highlighting the joys, struggles and nuances of the Black experience. We carry their torch, and honor their legacies through our work.
This vertical is the product of resilience. Inspired by the creativity of the Black community, it is a space where our ideas and our experiences are liberated, validated and uplifted through any and all mediums – a space where the B is always capitalized.
Black voices. Black stories. Black excellence.
