It is time to change the perception of how African-Americans are perceived with a peaceful revolution that begins with the written word.
We need to share well-written stories and photographs that promote the positive impact that so many African-Americans have on their communities and their nation.
We need to tell the stories that speak the truth, but that so often never make the national headlines because they fail to fit the typical stereotype that is perpetuated in the mainstream press of African Americans.
We need to put forth the stories that shout the successes of African-Americans so water cooler conversations and tweets beam brightly and enter into our daily dinner conversations with our children.
Urban News Service provides blockbuster stories that are professionally reported and edited along with photographs to nearly every African-American publication in the country. We seek and publish stories that celebrate black America; the types of stories that are ignored by the mainstream press, but that are followed once they are broken by our African-American subscribing news outlets. These are the stories that change perceptions and build readership in both print and online.
As a division of American Media Institute, Urban News Service is a nonprofit 501(c)3, and is entirely dependent on contributions by donors who share a commitment to our mission.
