21 Black Media Innovations

From Cultural Yoga Publications to Social Hip-Hop Apps

— December 10, 2015 — Pop Culture
Above all else, black media platforms emerge naturally as a reaction to a mainstream media that doesn't honestly represent them, if at all.

Some of the most innovative forms of media capture the interests of audiences from a variety of channels. For instance, 'Blavity' was developed as a multi-cultural media platform specifically designed to appeal to black millennials, while 'Black Girl in Om' was founded in order to fill a void in the yoga community, with both online and offline formats.

While digital media tends to have great success in reaching modern audiences, there are also a few publications that exist strictly in print. A prime example of this is Greenroom Magazine, which puts a specific focus on hip-hop, culture and contemporary issues relevant to the community.
