About Black Power Media

Black Power Media (BPM) is a Black-radical independent media collective: We seek to challenge the narrative about Black politics and the Black condition.
Renegade Culture, IMIXWHATILIKE, The Last Dope Intellectual, and future programming will deliver the news and information our community and others need to break through today's mainstream propaganda machine.
BPM calls truth to power and does not hold back on discussing what’s going on at the political, electoral, and grassroots levels of our communities, and provides ideological breakdowns and ways forward for our community.
