What we do

It’s All Blakademik is a panel debate show, with black people discussing current affairs issues relating to the culture. Discussing various topics, on a weekly basis; exchanging opinions, experiences and expertise.

Mainstream television only seems to want to show black people en masse within the arenas of entertainment and sport. These are two areas black people excel in.

But the culture has so much more to offer and this platform aims to offer that. The show is a platform that doesn’t say it has the answer but offers alternative prospectives to issues that affect the black community; with intelligent, engaging and progressive black people. If you enjoy seeing black excellence, this is the show for you. Hosted by Jordan Jarrett-Bryan, expect laughs, strong views but mature chat.
