About Us

In a world of 24/7 breaking news and neverending social media feeds, it is easy to get sucked into a cycle of despair. Most media leads us to believe that current events exist in a vacuum when, in fact, many of society’s “new” challenges have been successfully overcome in the past.

PushBlack was created to bridge the gap between the past and present by sharing empowering stories intersecting news and history.

As the United States’ first mobile-based organizing group for Black Americans, we inform our people about critical issues and lead them to take action. We believe in the power of Black history and share lessons from the past that people can use today as they work to strengthen their community.

With more than 9 million monthly readers, we're working to build the largest online community of Black Americans. Through daily communications on Text and Facebook Messenger, we are putting power in the hands of the people. This has made us the premier mobile source of information and action for Black people around the country. We push hard. We push forward. We PushBlack.
