National Black Church Initiative Urges 150,000 Black Churches in U.S. to Triple Its Spending With Black Press
It is critical that the Black church preserves and strengthens the economic outlook for Black media and Black people. As the economy gets stronger we are urging all Black Churches to be intentional in tripling their spending with all Black media properties.
Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative, says, “The National Black Church Initiative believes in the Black Press and its power and its right to exist. We plan to set an example. We will commit 5% of our budget over the next three years, working with the Black press, Black radio and Christian bloggers. Each of our projects will have an advertising media budget associated with it going forward. We hope to set this example for the rest of the Black Church.”
In addition to managing their individual projects, the recipients of our Educator Grants cultivate their own supportive community—sharing project pictures, exchanging feedback and brainstorming future ideas.
