In the same way you used to turn to the last page of Jet Magazine to see where Black people would be on TV, Blackwatch aims to tell you where you can find Black folks in the heights of their geekiness.
The Blackwatch list covers television, movies, comics, webcomics, and select websites that feature or are by Black people.
This list is always a work in progress. Not only because things change but also because new information is discovered. If any of you readers have any suggestions or want to highlight anything happening in Black media, please friend us on Facebook or leave a commenting the comments section below.
