Channel Black is an immersive training program that prepares the next generation of Black leaders to construct, optimize, and implement strategic interventions through the media.

We are diversifying the faces of people identified as experts and featured on television, radio, and in print media discussing and intervening on important and polarizing issues that impact Black communities.

Through our work, we are transcending barriers to empathizing with and understanding Blackness and the plight of Black communities in America, developing the strategic thinking, media savvy, and persuasive debate skills of Black millennial leaders, and supplementing tried-and-true, on-the-ground organizing tactics with empirically backed interventions that lead to reduced racial bias and prejudicial treatment by law enforcement, vigilantes, and everyday people.
