The Black Beat Editor-In-Chief, Brandon Banks, is a graduate of Howard University and a former Basketball, Football, Baseball, Track and Field, and Soccer player.

Banks shares that the Black Beat will offer fans a chance to stay informed on their favorite athletes’ performance during the game and gain insight on professional, collegiate, high school, and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) athletes.

“We will offer the chance for our audience to relate with the black athletes and have a deeper understanding for their personal story and motivation. Since I played varsity basketball in my hometown of New Orleans, one quote has always stuck to me – hard work beats out talents, when talents fails to work hard.”

Brown skin dominates the sports industry. Minority-owned media representation is lacking. The time for the Black Beat is now.

Today, L & Company is a integrated marketing and consulting agency providing marketing strategy,research, full-service digital and advertising. Founded in 2016, its diverse portfolio of businesses and investments includes media, marketing, and technology.
