Project Description

 

 

Notedd informs Black women on today’s news while celebrating and highlighting our culture throughout the world.

What's the issue with the media?

 

Black millennial women feel invisible to the media available to them.

According to the American Press Institute, “61% of African Americans (around 29 million) think it is difficult to keep up with today’s news,” and “nearly 4 in 10 African Americans report that the news they consume does not at all accurately portray their community.

Text box stating Who Do We Support?

 

Notedd’s number one goal is to help Black women stay informed, connected, and authentically themselves. There are nearly 2.3 million Black women trendsetters who influence culture for all women and contribute to the U.S. buying power. According to Nielsen, it is projected to reach $1.5 trillion this year.

Notedd fills this void by bringing Black women to the forefront of mainstream media through our thoughtfully curated content and community experiences.

  • We aggregate a variety of weekly news and lifestyle topics into a high-quality, easy-to-read weekly newsletter written in the voice of and based on the unique perspective of fellow aspiring Black women.
  • Our virtual culture conversations provide space for our community to discuss topics that are important and impact the Black community, from current affairs to music to fashion.
