By: Lets Buy Black 365
The negative propaganda has left millions of Black people disenchanted with the mainstream media depictions. Millions are starved for quality programming featuring stories that reflect the amazing Black men, women, and children doing spectacular things every day. Stories of successful Black business owners, professionals, community leaders and everyday heroes rarely see the light of day. Fortunately, one group is stepping up to answer the demand for quality African American Programming.
Connect TV by Let's Buy Black 365 launched its all new breakout series and is crushing Black stereotypes in the process. Let's Buy Black 365 is a Black economic empowerment movement made up of Black people from all walks of life gathered to make a positive impact on their community through cooperative economics. Members of the movement organized to form a production team called The Positive Black Media Project. The group is aimed at showcasing the positive impact.
