Why we created kweliTV

  • Are you tired of seeing the cookie-cutter reality shows that depict black women as messy and violent?
  • Do you have a hard time finding content that reflect your beliefs, culture and rich history?
  • Are you frustrated with the limited selection of black independent films and documentaries on your favorite streaming service?

So are we. kweliTV is what you’ve been waiting for.

We are super excited to have been chosen to participate in the Women's Startup Challenge. We are seeking $20,000. These funds will go to: 1) Tweaking our site during the beta so we can have a robust December launch; 2) Producing a daily 5-minute video news program that will hit people's smartphones and tablets with the 5 top news items of the African disapsora each day; and 3) Creating an interactive "call-to-action" component to our platforms so viewers take action and get involved in the stories they watch.
