On April 6, 2012, National Black Television signed-on as (NBTV) www.nbtv1.com and, in the words of its founder and CEO Stanley Everage, Jr., "We will never come off the air, brothers and sisters. We won't stop."
This momentous beginning for (NBTV) www.nbtv1.com is the result of work that began in 2003, when Everage created the National Black Young Men & Women of America in his hometown of New Orleans. As fate would have it, the organization's public high school mentoring program was disrupted in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina, and the National Black Young Men & Women relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to continue working within the African-American community.
All along, in Louisiana and Georgia, there was an overwhelming outpouring of support for the National Black Young Men and Women of America from community, business and political leaders. Everage had the awesome privilege of meeting every one of these inspiring people, a very long list including community leaders who are making change, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Grambling State University President Dr. Frank Pogue, numerous HBCU athletes, and celebrities including R&B singers Chilli and Monica, comedian Steve Harvey. At every encounter Everage thought, "Wouldn't it be great if the world could see and experience this?"
This is how NBTV was born.
Everage produced the stories under the banner of the National Black Television Network, placing the spotlight on stories of the African-American community and giving deserving attention to the nation's often-overlooked historically black colleges and universities, their academic, sporting and cultural events.
These stories can be seen on NBTV www.nbtv1.com and remain relevant to this day, as the world's first Internet television network moves forward to empower the African-American community by continuing its coverage, addressing the challenging issues of the day, including education, unemployment, and politics.
NBTV www.nbtv1.com is creating a new awareness of the African-American community and is strengthening its voice as it provides a view, never seen before, to the rest of the world.
From the Rainbow PUSH Coalition comes gratitude for NBTV's cultural reinforcement for historically black colleges and universities. "I am glad to see this partnership between NBTV and the HBCUs," says Vice President of Legal Affairs Janice L. Mathis.
Rollingout.com, places Everage and his National Black Television in league with Magic Johnson and Sean "Diddy" Combs and their networks, Revolt and Aspire, respectively. Rollingout.com says, "Combs with pop culture and music, Johnson with positive programming for black families and Everage with HBCU coverage are efforts to fill a void in cable ad online TV that we should be proud to support."
