Black+ is a video channel/blog that focuses on the misrepresentations of black people in the media and the world. The media has been able to shape popular culture and often influence public opinion from matters as small as getting store brand or off-brand items and matters as critical as choosing a presidential candidate. Black+ is a limitless multimedia campaign that aims to combat the rampant culture of anti-blackness perpetuated by the culture of Eurocentrism cultivated within the West, in the international community. The multimedia campaign will utilize social media and traditional media to deliver written pieces, online content, and a web series through a Viceland (Viceland has a focus on lifestyle-oriented documentary and reality series)
format.
