In the midst of a global pandemic and protests, Black leaders from across the globe are banding together to create Black Culture Weekly. This platform features a state of the art mobile app and website created by longtime activist, Aspiration:Unlimited LLC CEO/Founder Jeremiah Isaiah, who was inspired to develop the platform while being wrongfully arrested as a member of the #GoodTrouble65. Other pivotal co-founders include Rev. Stephen Green who most recently lead actions in Lousivlle, KY around the police murder of EMT, Breonna Taylor and Attorney Stephanie Morales, who is one of few people in history to prosecute an officer for the killing of an unarmed black person. WSJ Consulting LLC President & CEO Waikinya Clanton will also join the team as Strategic Political and Equity Advisor. This initiative is designed to connect black audiences with news and ways to engage on the issues they care about most. Another core mission of the program is to fight the decline of over 40% of Black businesses during COVID through the donation of $1M worth of apps/websites.
Other features for users include “Shop Black AF”, “Black Fitness Gurus” featuring UK Mega influencer @lelasiimone, “Black Realtors Alliance”, “Creatives Corner”, “Exploration Society” and “Beauty + Beyond”
