The NAACP introduced the Internet via the most progressive voice in Black America

leave a comment »

The first time the NAACP educated its loyal base about the emerging Internet it developed a cover story article titled “Movin’ Into the Fast Lane on the Information Superhighway”  for its members’ magazine.

Published April 1995 in “The Crisis,” its own magazine branded  the most progressive voice in Black America, the NAACP captured perfectly why millennium year destinations such as Black Twitter zones are resonating  among African Americans and non-blacks today.

The 21 year old article quoted an African American  pre-The Root web site publisher who said ” our philosophy is that the Black Experience brings to the table something not only the  Black community needs, but also the non-black and the world community can use”
Put your thinking caps on and if you’re capable and willing, let’s discuss what role you could play in developing and implementing a post-beta version.  Boston media producer William Murrell, III contributed to the NAACP article featured in the blog post.

11% in PEW INTERNET study are African American

with one comment

A statement in  the 2008 PEW  / INTERNET  “networked families” report says “busy and tech-using families are less likely to share meals and less likely to report satisfaction with their leisure time.”   If you are surprised by this, perhaps you shouldn’t be.   “New connectedness” and “shared internet experiences” were seen as positives.

The full report is 44 pages of data supplied by single and married households with or without children.

Researchers had placed over 25,000 random phone calls to get 2,252 adults on record about their use of computers, phones and the internet as recent as December 2007.

African-Americans were 11% of data sampled.  Click to Download the report
