As media platforms become increasingly essential to our lives, it’s never been more important that these companies represent all communities. With Group Black, Travis Montaque established a Black-owned media firm that will tackle the ingrained inequality of the industry. The entrepreneur followed that up with the creator network Crater. “Crater is a first-of-its-kind creator network where the next wave of culture is made and monetized,” Montaque told Adweek. “We’re really trying to change the economic situation of these creators and drive opportunity for them.” New media is the future of the entertainment industry and it’s essential that Black people get just as involved behind the scenes as we are on-camera. We’re the ones who set the trends, so we should be the ones to profit off of them. And something tells us, we’re all going to need a favorite new social media platform very soon.
