Tell Me More #NPRBlacksinTech

NPR kicked off an effort to to recognize black innovators in technology on December 2, 2013.  NPR’s Tell Me More has been utilizing Twitter to engage the African-American community by asking entrepreneurs and techies to profile themselves during #NPRBlacksinTech “A Day in the Life” social media series.  Throughout the past few weeks, entrepreneurs and technologists have been answering questions from youth at the Howard University School of Mathematics and Science and will continue to live-tweet a day in their lives through December 20, 2013.  Participants will also provide feedback to the questions that Tell Me More has collected with #NPRBlacksinTech.  An archive of the series can be found on NPRs Storify.

Join the conversation.   Use the hashtag #NPRBlacksinTech and @TellMeMore to show your support of the effort.  As Sheryl Sandberg states in her book Lean In, ” We need to look out for one another, work together, and act more like a coalition. As individuals, we have relatively low levels of power.  Working together, we have real power.”  As obvious as this sounds, WE have not always worked together in the past.  Let’s change the game!  Look at all the talent and “Change Leaders” on this list.  There are more out there, but as a community, lets thank NPR for their efforts.
