Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article is interesting not only because it offers a glimpse of three stories underlining the need for the Black Lives Matter movement, but also because it points us to kweliTV, a video streaming service that is not Disney+, and which offers "400+ undiscovered, award-winning indie films, documentaries, web series & kids shows celebrating global black culture from anywhere in the world." The three stories, meanwhile, document the attacks on Black Wall Street, the massacre in Wilmington, and Bessie Coleman, the first black woman pilot. The need for such channels shows what a disservice the consolidation of online content into a few major players is, and why it's important to learn about the world from a diverse array of perspectives.
