The Chronicle Partners with Black Collective in Content Sharing and Local Documentary Series
5/4/2016 4:05:18 PM

Charleston’s leading African-American news source, The Chronicle, opens a new partnership with Black Collective, a local digital news company specializing in producing short and long form news documentaries to the vast social media and online video audience. Readers of the Chronicle will be exposed to the visual elements of articles, placing themselves into the stories. Along with the weekly, short form news docs to accompany the articles, The Chronicle and Black Collective will team up to produce long form news documentaries.

In June 2016, The Chronicle will premiere its first full length documentary series with Black Collective during the first annual, Black Collective Weekend Festival. Writer for The Chronicle, Barney Blakeney’s, March 9th article, BLACK BUSINESS BLOWN OFF IN TOURISM WINDFALL, is the first article produced into a documentary as a Black Collective Exclusive. The story will take on Charleston’s $9 Billion tourism industry and the rich cultural history, built on the contribution and stories of African-Americans, and the minimal economic participation of black owned businesses. The story will be distributed in a four-part series with the full length being aired on local TV stations with additional commentary and unseen footage.

This innovative partnership will merge the sustainability of The Chronicles longtime audience with the growing digital consumer on social media and online video platforms.
