If you’re interested in learning more about how online video can fit into your business, please mark you calendars for Thursday June 19, 2008.

Visual Eye Media’s founder Amani Channel, along with Loren Norman, and Rob Kishuk have been invited to the Atlanta Web Entrepreneurs Meet Up Group to share some secrets about how to leverage online video.

According to the latest comScore figures, 11.5 billion videos were watched online in the month of March. While YouTube draws most of the viewers by far, there are plenty of examples of new businesses that are also being built around web video. Take a look at ExpertVillage.com, Blabbermash.com, and Seesmic.com for some innovative examples.

The trio will present an interactive, and informative discussion. Channel will share insights of how to develop a well-produced video on a budget. Norman will demonstrate how to webcast live on the Internet, and Kishuk will delve into the tools and opportunities involved in building a company based on video.

The event starts at 6:45pm at Georgia Tech’s ATDC
75 5th Street
NW Hodges Room, 3rd floor
Atlanta, GA 30308

To attend this event, register at MeetUp.com’s Atlanta Web Entrepreneur Group.

On Monday June 16, about 800 people gathered at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art to get an exclusive sneak peek at CNN’s documentary Black in America. I’m looking forward to seeing the entire program after getting a taste of several segments.

After spending more than a decade of my life in the news business, it’s refreshing to see a mainstream news organization attempt to tell in depth stories about the Black experience.

Personally, I wish that we were at a point when we wouldn’t have to look at things in Black and White, but that is the unavoidable reality, and many more conversations most certainly need to take place to help American heal from its brutal legacy.

The special airs July 23 & 24, and regardless of your background you should check it out.

CNN invited My Urban Report to sit down for a quick Q&A with the program’s host Soledad O’Brien. The interview is coming, but for now check out pics from the preview.

WAGA-TV anchor/reporter Art Franklin has released an inspirational book for young black males. My Urban Report received the following press release about an upcoming book signing at “Called to Conquer Bookstore,” at Sonecrest Mall.

I couldn’t find the date and time of the event on the release though.

from Chit Chat Communications press release:

The Birmingham Post-Herald called Art Franklin a “Prime Time Pioneer” as he became the first African-American Male to anchor a Prime Time Newscast in the once deeply segregated city of Birmingham, Alabama. While working in Birmingham, Art was named as one of the city’s next generation leaders and tapped as a candidate for Mayor when he left the news anchor desk. Art decided to pursue other interests and eventually ended up in Atlanta, GA.

Art Franklin has authored his first book titled, “Give It All You Got: A Message to My Young Brothers.” It is an inspirational book for young black males, published by WriteStyle Publishing. ‘I am very excited to have the opportunity to put my experiences, and lessons learned from others, on paper and into the hands of young brothers, said Art Franklin. “I sincerely believe that this book will help them find success in their lives.” Give It All You Got: A Message to My Young Brothers is very dear to Art because it was written after the murder of his nephew. It is an effort to ensure that his nephew’s death was not in vain. Through the messages in the book, Art reaches out to young men to share with them ways of how they can turn negative situations into positive ones.
Art Franklin’s book is the fulfillment of a promise to do whatever is within his power to help rescue troubled young men. It is the continuation of Art’s conviction to give back to a community that he understands from personal experience. Art’s career has been filled with unselfish dedicated community service such as (organizing): tutorial programs, mentoring programs, gang lock-ins, serving as the chairman of a citizen’s advisory commission on youth programs, and (creating ) a program in a juvenile detention center that (assisted juvenile offenders in turning their lives around).

Art Franklin has been a journalist covering stories domestically and abroad for more than 25 years. He has won numerous awards, including two Emmy Awards, and was most recently the Weekend Anchor/Reporter for Atlanta’s FOX 5 WAGA-TV.
