Meeting of Minds is the Leading Exporter of African Narratives.

As a digital publishing company, we produce slow news and solutions journalism. As a cross-platform brand, we connect African women from the Diaspora to the Continent. We create new media experiences that centres cultural competency and racial literacy. Through high quality content and partnership brokering, we aim to disrupt traditional markets, challenge the status quo and buck conventional storytelling.

Plans

Newsroom
Staffed by an international team of Black female and non-binary writers, penning crucial and critical commentary at the intersection of race and gender. Our journalism is nuanced and novel, presenting piercing analysis, and delivering reportage on issues mainstream media overlook. With a global independent perspective, we provide counter and contrasting news, which is trustworthy, transparent and timely – stories that stir emotions and invoke action.
Podcasts
Our podcasts strike at the heart of the matter, each episode inspiring candid conversations with intellectuals and cultural change-makers, spotlighting the voices that matter. Our audio content gives listeners the space to dive deep into topics, ranging from politics and business to contemporary art and Black feminism - shifting paradigms and encouraging radical thinking and sustainable solutions.
Masterclass
Our masterclasses are a suite of modular learning resources representing forward-thinking industry best-practice, providing access to workshops and seminars with expert practitioners. Through the classes, social capital is increased, knowledge is gained and exchanged, and natural connections emerge - engineering an international network of like-minded peers.
