Alt Black News is sponsored by ‘The People’, whose contributions help us grow, stay independent and amplify a variety of black voices. The platform is a work in progress as we build and show what is possible. There is much more that needs to be done in order to transition these voices from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube. That requires servers, cyber security, backing up/archiving content, protecting this work and making this platform self sufficient. Thanks to you we are live on Alexa. Enable our skill, then say “Alexa, launch Alt Black Radio”. We are in the process of going live on Roku, Fire TV and Apple TV, your contributions help make this work possible.
Time is not on our side. One takeaway from the Facebook outage is we no longer have the luxury of building on platforms we don’t own or control. There will be more censorship, shadowbanning and de-platforming, not less. We need all the help we can get.
