Your Voice Represented
According to Harlem-based Futuro Media Group, only 38% of Blacks and Latinos feel their views are represented in mainstream media. FMG’s editorial team consists of 79% people of color, giving a much-needed multicultural perspective about local and global events. Futuro also strives to provide tools for the next generation of creators to be able to tell their own stories on their own terms.
