This option is for folks who just want to support content already available through twitter and youtube, and likely know how most of my google ad requests are denied. Your $5/month is phenomenal help! You get access to all content.

About Intelexual Media

HEY THERE!
So you may be wondering why I have a Patreon!

My name is Elexus Jionde and I have written two books and published a third book of black quotations, along with numerous viral twitter threads and videos that detail race, gender, and American history. I'm 26-years-old and have a B.A. in history from The Ohio State University. 


I produce Intelexual Media content (tweet threads, JSYK videos, essays, VLOGs, etc) for free, and I want to keep it that way. Having a Patreon allows me to create full-time. As a patron, you get plenty of perks (with even more on the way)!

Patreon Exclusives For All $1+ Tiers Include:

  • Let's Talk About Sex History, a video series composed of 8 twenty minute episodes that discuss how sexuality has shaped American history, events, and attitudes, and how it all impacts modern Americans. 
  • Investigating History, an engaging four-part written series that teaches you how to be an accurate amateur historian and breaker of fallacies.
  • Personal Essays on a plethora of topics, like Fahrenheit 451, Censorship, and Writing Your Story White Supremacy and The Black Family, and more. As I near completion to my 4th book, I will release previews here.
  • Lexual Says: The news series you didn't know you needed. I produce new episodes 1-2x a month.
  • Early access to new episodes of Lexual Does The 70s, a 30-40 minute-per-episode series that explores the decade people don't know enough about.
  • Monthly Reading Lists with 8-10 (sometimes more) articles, books, and studies suggested for my fellow intellectuals who also love to learn new things daily.
  • Exclusive Videos like JSYK: How To Self-Publish Your Own Book. While this video and some others remain exclusive to patreon, other JSYK videos (which you've probably seen on twitter) are often released here 24-48 hours early, giving you an early VIP look. 
  • & Much More! As time goes by, more content will be added. With enough funding in the near future, the Intelexual Media patreon will resemble something like PBS, producing documentaries and series from other intellectuals along with an increase in written pieces.
Believe it or not, producing all this stuff takes a lot of work, research, and emotional labor but I do it because I love being a nerd and teaching others. Patrons understand the importance of real history and palpable social commentary being spread in a down to earth and accessible way. 

What does pledge money go towards?

A few of you just want to pay me for the work I'm providing for free on intelexual.co and twitter, and the rest of you want exclusive patreon content. Either way, I thank you for the support and want you to know what your money goes towards: Paying a living wage to my video editor, Almonte, plus the purchase of new equipment, necessary books, media subscriptions, and website maintenance.  But more than anything else, your pledge allows me to devote more time to writing my next book. 

Goals
100% complete
I want to reach $3500 per month in patreon earnings so I can pay my video editor more.
