Our Black News, (formally the Independent Business News Network) was established in July of 2008. The goal of OBN is to provide a different view of the local, national and global news and events that happen in the Black communities in the Twin Cities, as well as the United States. Our expectations are to provide a level of coverage and investigative reporting not seen in a long time. Our Black News covers Politics, Education, Money, Business, and Community events. In most cases, the mainstream media does not cover important news in the Black community. OBN is here to tear open the tent!
