    THE ANJEL APP LETS USERS ACTIVATE THEIR OWN BODY CAMS WHEN PULLED OVER BY POLICE

James A. Samuel, Jr., is a Black veteran who has launched a new app called ANJEL Tech that turns any smartphone into the world’s most powerful bodycam during confrontations with the police. James said that he became tired of raising kids in a world that forces them to understand they’re unsafe in their skin before they even learn their ABCs.

In past weeks in April, the world has been watching Derek Chauvin on trial for murder charges for the killing of George Floyd; seeing news about 2nd Lt. Caron Nazario, who is Black and Latino, getting pulled over by two police officers in Windsor, Virginia; and the killing of Daunte Wright at the hands of police. And these only are a few of too many stories of Black people being racially profiled and fearing for safety when being pulled over by police.

ANJEL Tech is an innovative solution to increase safety and peace of mind in the Black community. The app is secure, mobile, and cloud-based. James says that he created it because he’s passionate about preventing your loved ones from becoming another painful statistic. "Body cams can’t just be for police," he says. "So I created ANJEL Tech to enable a person’s phone to act as a body cam and a lifeline to loved ones to increase safety and accountability."

He continues, "When George Floyd was being asphyxiated, he was calling out verbally for his mother. When Lt. Caron Nazario was pulled over, he recorded the incident on his phone, but imagine if they both had been able to instantly and automatically alert their loved ones to come. Imagine if the footage of any these horrific incident had been controlled by the victim himself. That’s what ANJEL Tech does. I've created an app that reduces the emotional, financial, and physical toll of racial profiling."

MEET THE 94TH BLACK WOMAN TO HAVE RAISED $1M IN VENTURE CAPITAL FOR HER STARTUP

Janice Omadeke, founder and CEO of an Austin, Texas-based tech startup called The Mentor Methodhas raised $1.4 million in seed funding to galvanize workplace inclusion and equity by reshaping mentorship experiences in support of diverse, rising talent. As of December 2020, only 93 other Black women have raised $1 million or more in venture capital.

Every company committing to social justice needs to include mentorship as a part of their action plan. Mentorship is a proven way to propel workplace inclusion and equity, but the process of finding a high-quality mentor has historically been inequitable.

Most people want a mentor, but fewer than 40 percent of people find one. Companies often find attrition rates higher among diverse talent, and turn to The Mentor Method for an affordable, easy-to-implement, scalable solution that enables diverse talent to connect, share valuable career lessons, and have support with navigating career challenges so that they are more likely to succeed, stay, and develop into empowered leaders.

Multi-talented Musical Prodigy Gina Williams Works Creatively To Releash 5 Albums This Year In Different Genres

Gina Williams, is quietly shattering barriers of how things “should be”.  I caught up with the multitalented singer and pianist who diversely sings and performs in 5 different musical forms.  Williams, a product of striving Jamaican roots by way of a challenging Canadian upbringing - has a fascinating story to tell!

The singer, pianist, songwriter, and composer released a choral and orchestral album called “Olympiad” and performed with 4 choirs and 2 orchestras on Ukrainian National Television in 2019.

This year she is releasing 5 albums - Each in a different genre: EDM, Caribbean, Gospel, Classical, and Rock.

The multi genre musician was born to Jamaican parents in the prairies of Alberta.

Growing up with racism and prejudice, she spent most of her years hiding her gift of music - the ability to hear finished music in her head because somehow she believed “people like her shouldn’t be the one with “that kind of a gift.” Decades later, she finally accepts herself and her attraction to anyone unconventional.

Editorial: On Why Woke Folk Should Vote

By Kamau Austin, Publisher And Editor-In-Chief Scoop Publications

I may not get you to change your mind but I don't accept people like Dr. Boyce or anybody else coming off like Blacks who vote are stupid or just settling for the the less of 2 evils.
I'm voting because I pay taxes especially locally, I want more government contracts locally to give Black businesses viable contracts to then build wealth, hire more Black people in the US, and develop economic institutions.

Then take that money and invest in developing markets. I vote because it could mean millions of Black people having health care, jobs, and getting access to capital.

The problem for me is Blacks pay a good deal of taxes.  On 1.3 trillion in yearly collective revenue we are paying some where in the neighborhood of $250 billion to $300 billion dollars in taxes a year.  If we don't vote that is de facto self imposed taxation without representation.
