Black America Web, launched in June 2001, is a broad-based effort to become a timely and credible source for news and information covering all aspects of daily life, featuring a wide array of viewpoints and perspectives. In launching, Tom Joyner, host of the nationally syndicated "Tom Joyner Morning Show," endeavored to create an interactive, easy-to-use Internet community and comprehensive source of information for and about African-Americans. Providing visitors with relevant news and information produced by original writers and the Black press, and tools that help site visitors make informed decisions that affect their daily lives is our goal.

Joyner envisions as a vehicle to leverage his tremendous popularity and to create a one-stop source that will bring African-Americans together. "This is more than just a website," said Joyner, the site's founder and principal, whose morning drive time show is heard by more than 8 million people in more than 115 markets. "We want to bring together the African-American community like no one has ever done before."
The site, which is Joyner's latest enterprise, builds off his drive to "inform, entertain and empower" African-Americans. is building upon the unparalleled ability of Tom Joyner to mobilize African-Americans.
