Frederick Joseph – @The Tight Rope + @The Real News Network


Real News Alert!!! For the next few months, The Tight Rope and The Real News Network have partnered for the next few months to bring you exclusive conversations with some of the world’s foremost thought leaders, educators, activists, artists and intellectuals.

This week, Dr. Cornel West and professor Tricia Rose step out on “The Tight Rope” with Frederick Joseph, an award-winning marketing professional, media representation advocate, and author of the New York Times bestseller, “The Black Friend.” Frederick is the sole creator of the largest GoFundMe campaign in history, the #BlackPantherChallenge​, which ultimately generated over $43 million in earned advertising and media, and raised over $950,000 to allow more than 75,000 children worldwide to see “Black Panther” for free. Frederick talks to the professors about using his professional skill set and storytelling abilities to create action-based marketing campaigns centered on social justice and empowerment. He reveals that, in addition to fighting against injustice and against the global pandemic, he is also embroiled in a daily battle against multiple sclerosis (MS).
