Have a Black-owned business? You’ll want to read this!
In honor of Black History Month and because we’re celebrating our 15 years in publishing, BleuLife Media is planning something big.
Bleu will generously donate one million dollars in print advertising to Black-Owned businesses nationwide. The giving will start at the end of the month of February. We know all to well that getting your name out there takes a lot of time. And a lot of money. So we want to lesson the load.
DéVon Johnson, CEO and Founder of BleuLife Media Group, explains that the giveaway was sparked by a desire to give back after Bleu received much appreciated support during the crisis that has threatened many businesses, including media companies.
“We were fortunate to receive funding from LISC, LOWES, 100 Black Men, and actress/singer Janelle Monet during the pandemic. Paying it forward to help support other Black-owned businesses is the right thing to do. We want to help build ecosystems of success.”
The giveaway includes a full year (8 issues) of advertising for 10 Black-owned businesses.
In addition to the big give-away, we here at Bleu are also launching our Spring Issue of Bleu Magazine starring Trippie Redd. The issue is available for purchase online starting February 16. Trippie Redd is known for his unorthodox presence within the music industry. Between his outrageous fashion sense and genre-bending tracks, Trippie is nothing short of iconic.
In an interview with Bleu, the artist opens up about coping with death, which seems to be ever-present in the rap industry. He acknowledges his own experience within the rap community as someone who cannot be confined to one genre. The 21-year-old chart-topper tells us about his future collaborative projects with co-Ohio native, Machine Gun Kelly and Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker.
