The “REVOLT BLACK NEWS Weekly” conversation will address President Joe Biden administration’s COVID-19 marketing contracts with Black-owned media, which has a disproportionate level of federal funding awarded to them. This issue has been highlighted by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton as well as the 2018 GOA report of federal ad buys.
Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people for Black people.
“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ‘REVOLT BLACK NEWS.’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
