Name: Angela Benton | Black Web 2.0
Creator of multiple sites dedicated to African American media, Angela strives to create content that is beyond your usual celebrity gossip, focusing on technology and new media. Since 2007, she has built up a number of sites, including Black Web 2.0 blog, the Young Black Professional Guide, and Politic365. She has also formed partnerships with major sites such as BET.com, AOL’s BlackVoices, and NBC Universal’s The Grio, agreeing to provide them with tech-focused content.
She was recently named as one of Ebony Magazine’s Power 150 in the Technology and New Media category, the youngest Hall of Fame of the Minority and Telecommunications Council and a 2010 Woman of Power honoree by the National Urban League, giving us reason to say she is definitely at the top of her game.
What we can expect in the future is for Angela to continue to be a catalyst in technology and new media. We also expect her to build upon her portfolio of sites and become a leader in innovation on the web.
