Soledad O’Brien Chronicles Journeys Of Black Tech Entrepreneurs For Fourth Black In America

Ludacris & Soledad O'Brien - It's Pimpin' All Over The World!

Shouts going out once again to Soledad O’Brien and the Mixed Chick Revolution for having an innate understanding of certain matters that are less than often spoken about and taking the initiative to bring the matters to the light for the purposes of opening up rational public discourse.


The New Promised Land – Silicon Valley Debuts Sunday, Nov. 13 at 8:00p.m. and 11:00p.m. ET & PT

While much of the country struggles to emerge from a recession, California’s Silicon Valley is booming, and technology companies like Facebook, Skype, and Apple are seeing their valuations soar.  CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien reports that the ownership of this digital bloom is mostly young, white, and male.  For her fourth Black in America documentary, O’Brien asks why, according to industry analyst CB Insights, less than one percent of all venture capital money went to digital startups with African-American founders in 2010 – and she profiles a unique, technology-focused “accelerator” developed to help African-American digital entrepreneurs secure funding to establish their businesses.


As African American tech entrepreneurs, I supposed we could offer some valid insight into the matter of this upcoming news segment, yet since it tends to work better to show the news as opposed to tell the news, the ability to get the word out about this CNN News special in a timely fashion should be suffice for any investors interested in learning about web ventures with profit potential.
