For The Culture ✊🏾

This app is a great way to stay informed about what’s going on in the black community.

I do have a suggestion. Can we have an option to choose the type of notifications we receive? So for example, I receive many “entertainment” notifications, but I would only like to receive notifications based on major news in the black community.

Also, there are times where I click on a new notification and the related story doesn’t display. It’ll take me to the app’s home screen instead.

Black has been an amazing experience!

Black has been an amazing experience. I really value and rely on news during my daily commute to work, and this platform provides news about my people than regular political updates. Living and working in a white space 24/7, the app makes me feel connected to my community. I look forward to the new features implemented in the future like a social aspect. It would be awesome if I could share my thoughts with others.

Easy. Fast. Accurate

Black is a great space to receive accurate black news that other news outlets do not focus on. It’s your one stop shop to see what positive things are going on in the black community and get some entertainment news. It’s hard to miss any of the top stories because the notifications draw you in as if you were talking with a group of friends. I highly recommend this app for others to use.
