“As a Black woman who has worked at both mainstream and niche media outlets for more than 15 years, it has always been my passion to find a space for women of color to see themselves,”
With original web series that target Black and Latina women in particular, ChicRebellion.tv content reflects her interests as fashionista, foodie, mom, entrepreneur, career woman, intellectual, partner, powerhouse and much more! Although the on-demand network makes sure to include a variety of nationalities in its programming (one look at the current shows on the network illustrates a diverse group of women who are featured), Fluker says the goal is to uniquely serve an unmet need for the target audience, an audience that has an ever-growing buying power, that studies show over indexes on video consumption, and that responds in great numbers to targeted content. These audiences are what Stephen Palacios of Cheskin Added Value called, “the intercultural new mainstream,”
“We understand the women who make up this important audience and know that for them, the time for a network that caters specifically to women of color is now,” exclaims Fluker, who says ChicRebellion.tv also will syndicate relevant video content from outside producers and production companies.
