#43 - The KweliTV Story: Deshuna Spencer shares how she built an online streaming service to share black stories around the world.

Read more

On this episode we have Deshuna Spencer Founder and CEO of KweliTV. It is an online streaming service built to tell the stories from around the world through curated independent films, documentaries, web series, kids programming, news, and events/live experiences. This is an amazing concept seeing as how the black diaspora is extremely diverse and often times there are not enough platforms sharing services like this from an African diaspora perspective. I really dig into the PURPOSE as to why Deshuna started KweliTV. Another episode you don't want to miss!

S02E05: DeShuna Spencer, Founder of KweliTV

Read more
This week on the Day Ones Podcast, we begin by discussing Steven Spielberg’s crusade against streaming services, and why that mission is completely damaging. Then, we pull out a lost episode from the vaults for ya’ll where we sit down with DeShuna Spencer, creator of KweliTV, a video streaming service that celebrates movies, TV, children’s programming, and much, much more from the African Diaspora. She walks us through how KweliTV was founded and what the process of starting a streaming platform is like. Next, she shares with us the content from her childhood that may have inspired her. After that she tells us how the content is selected to be on KweliTV, what the future of her company is, and of course we end by spreading love to our guest’s Day Ones. All this and a whole lot more to digest!
