BNA offers digestible news and content in a digital format (app, podcast, web & AI) to the Black community at large, ensuring that patrons of the service are informed and enabled to be effective citizens. From Ferguson to Orlando, we’ve watched our communities lose. Future losses must be avoided, and we believe that access and knowledge jolt needed change. Within the spectrum of BNA services, instant alerts allow readers to stay informed in multiple ways: including but not limited to – disparaging community happenings, rancid police activity, politics, entertainment and sports. The ‘Tell BNA’ function allows community members to provide us with breaking, often vital, information that we will be able to vet and share, fast. Community Alerts enable us to get communities, large and small, specific information without delay. Together we grow.
