Entrepreneur Launches Empowr Black News App to Change the Perception of African Americans

Adrian Devezin, founder of the Empowr news app

Meet Adrian Le'Roy Devezin, founder of Empowr News, a news app built by Black engineers for a Black-owned nonprofit featuring only Black news publishers.

Adrian comments, "To control our perception in the media, we as a people must support Black publishers. While there are few similar news apps out there, none make it simple to support only Black-owned publishers. Until we can own media, we cannot control our perception by the media."

Empowr News is convenient to catch up on the latest news while supporting only black-owned publishers. With the app, you can catch up on the latest news affecting the Black community and check out videos from YouTube's Black kings and queens in a beautiful and simple design.

The app will be adding even more exciting new features in the coming months as a nonprofit dedicated to democratizing the education system for Black children.

"We accomplish this by teaching career STEM skills to our youth. As part of our plan, we develop technology to aid the Black community," Adrian added.
