Black Wall St. Media

A global platform founded to bring the latest news across the diaspora.

Defying Stereotypes

The name “Black Wall Street Media” can be seen as a powerful and evocative choice for a black-owned and black-led media platform for several reasons:

Historical Significance: The name pays homage to the historic Greenwood District, also known as Black Wall Street, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which was a prosperous and self-sustaining black community in the early 20th century. Despite facing immense racial discrimination, Black Wall Street thrived economically, socially, and culturally. By referencing this historic achievement, the name symbolizes resilience, entrepreneurship, and black excellence.

Empowerment and Ownership: “Black Wall Street Media” conveys a sense of empowerment and ownership. It emphasizes the importance of economic independence, self-determination, and representation within the media industry. The name signifies a platform that is led by black individuals and operates with the intention of uplifting and amplifying black voices, stories, and perspectives.

Economic Empowerment: The choice of “Wall Street” in the name also connotes financial prosperity and economic empowerment. It suggests a commitment to building economic strength within the black community and supporting black-owned businesses. By aligning with the legacy of Black Wall Street, the name implies a dedication to fostering economic growth, wealth creation, and equitable opportunities within the black community.

Cultural and Social Relevance: The name “Black Wall Street Media” carries cultural and social significance. It acknowledges the contributions, achievements, and cultural heritage of the black community. It also serves as a reminder of the resilience and determination of black individuals and communities in the face of historical and ongoing systemic challenges.

Overall, the name “Black Wall Street Media” serves as a powerful and meaningful representation of a black-owned, black-led media platform that aims to uplift, empower, and celebrate black voices, stories, and achievements.

Meet The Team

CEO, Co - Founder

Dr Diahanne Rhiney

Those closest to me will know that I am no stranger to challenges. Throughout my personal, business, and social life I have encountered many obstacles to what society would tag ‘success’. All of which, looking back, I naively accepted and never really addressed in the best way. My story is not unique, there are many individuals from influential professional people, to social amateurs, and many in between who are displaced due to the challenges they’ve encountered in life.

My social change footprint began 30 years ago when I made a milestone choice that would affect my life for good.  At the time I was in what I now know to be a ‘toxic’ relationship. Things weren’t great between us and I wanted out of the relationship. This prompted an abusive reaction towards me which resulted in him continually stalking me and ultimately tried to kill me.  It was only afterwards that I could clearly see the damning signs.  But nothing could have prepared me for the untimely death of my mother who was the ‘foundation stone’ of my life, someone to look to and rely on to help me bear my load in life. She was amazing and touched many other lives as I found out at her funeral that was attended by over a thousand people. I realised then the importance of owning my own legacy, something positive, I can pass on to the benefit of others.

And at that point, I decided something had to change. It was now going to be ‘All About Me’ – I had to change ‘me’.  I studied psychology and empowerment extensively and singularly set up the first Social Change PR Agency specialising in diversity marketing and race relations, firmly establishing myself as a ‘Social Change-maker’ to inspire, encourage and empower people to ‘be the change they want to see’.

Contribute to Black Wall Street Media

Black Wall Street media is a global platform founded to bring the latest news across the diaspora. In order to create and promote and build community, we feature stories by and about Black people of the African Diaspora. This definition is globally inclusive and also applies to mixed and Afro-appended people regardless of gender identity or orientation.

We see Black Wall Street Media as the ultimate modern hub for the diaspora. Outside of our online our content, we utilise our reach as a platform for creative energies to build and maintain a vibrant community and create opportunities to showcase the wealth of talent across all sectors of the community. However, our editorial content is the heart and soul of this media company. With our platform being created for and powered the diaspora, we are seeking stories that the mainstream media doesn’t share and angles that are on-time and relevant.

In terms of the type of pieces we want to publish, we publish articles that go deep, make an impact, seek change or awareness, or explore unreported angles and underrepresented communities. We want pieces that go the extra mile to represent Black excellence.


  • 800-1,000 words long
  • Well written: Your piece must be fully proofread and print-ready with attention paid to punctuation, spelling, and tone.
  • On-time and relevant: As the home of breaking news, it’s vital that your piece is timely, relevant, and representative of Black Wall Street Media’s ethos.
  • Unique and evidenced: All pieces are checked for plagiarism and any facts or statistics should be double-checked before submission. Please include footnotes to secondary sources.
