An innovative and life-changing network

Independent Network

As an innovative and life-changing network, BNC’s mission is to provide intelligent programming that is informative, educational, entertaining, inspiring and empowering to its African American audience. BNC is an independent network, minority-owned and operated. BNC is the nation’s only provider of 24/7 cable news programming created “by people of color for people of color.”  BNC illuminates truth by authentically representing our dynamic African American communities.

Life Changing Network

BNC has a real opportunity to change lives and mindsets through the creation of a singular news organization based on a profoundly unique and critically important premise. BNC will serve up authentic, genuine, responsible and responsive news to black Americans. BNC’s news will include the priorities, issues, realities, and points-of-view of our black population and communities. BNC will be able to make a deep, rich connection to this target audience by being the antidote to today’s toxic news environment; our network will provide relevant news, as well as celebrate black lives, culture, and history.

  • Build bridges to connect the many diverse cultures in our nation;

  • Produce educational programming that is culturally relevant to empower African American viewers;
  • Inspire African American viewers with uplifting and spiritual messages produced daily;
