The Black Love+ App
The Black Love+ App

Recently, the new social audio app Clubhouse received a valuation of $1 billion. Clubhouse didn’t pop until Black creatives began using the app and creating rooms fixated on a variety of topics. Gaining access to Clubhouse became like finding a golden ticket for Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

It charged multi-mogul Master P to say that if Clubhouse were a Black-owned app, it would’ve never received the same level of support. KevOnStage spoke, in response to Master P’s statement, and voiced how Black people have shown up for his new app and that Black people aren’t offered the same opportunities to get venture capital or access to resources. There are tons of Black-owned apps out there that need our support. The same vigor with which many flocked to Clubhouse, is the same energy needed to amplify and spread the word about apps that were created for us, by us.

Black Love is now coming to our audience through our app in continuation of celebrating everything relating to Blackness and love. Access the platform for exclusive content including Couch Conversations, the men’s and women’s roundtable discussions, past seasons of Black Love Doc, and much more.
