Black In America 4 – Silicon Valley – The New Promised Land – Promo Picture & Video Released

October 21, 2011

Last week while I traveling CNN released a new promo picture for the upcoming Black In America series. TheBlack In America 4 subtitle is called “Silicon Valley – The New Promised Land” and tells the story of the NewMe Accelerator participates who lived in Silicon Valley this past summer. The promo picture features the eight founders who lived in the house which includes Anthony Frasier of Playd, Hank Williams of KloudCo, Angela Benton of Cued/NewMe Accelerator, Hajj E. Flemings of gokit, Crisson Jno-Charles of Fetchmob, Tiffani Ashley Bell of Pencil You In, Pius Uzamere of becouply and myself(Vouch/NewMe Accelerator) with Soledad O’Brien in the middle. Take a look.


CNN only covered the eight startup founders in the house and not all of the startups founders in the NewMe Accelerator. That was their choice not ours. The other startup founders were Chris Bennett of Central.ly, Curtiss Pope of aislefinder and David Adewum of OneSchool. There are a few Black In America 4 promo videos running on CNN currently like the one of me below.

A lot of people are asking if I’m excited about being in the upcoming Black In America 4 documentary. My response is a little but I’m more nervous than excited. Especially after reading the post called TechStars, Lies & Videotape about the TechStars Bloomberg TV show. Either way exciting times are ahead and Black In America 4 with Soledad O’Brien airs November 13 on CNN.
