Foundrie (Coming Soon)
I'm very excited to share with you some great news! A budding company called Foundrie (formerly And Her Story) has just submitted their application for the "Mass Challenge" in Boston. Through this state non-profit, they'd be given an opportunity for funding, mentorship, access, and much more. Why's this a big deal? Time and time again, if you come to this site or follow us on social media, you've seen the quote "Representation Matters". Black people building businesses to empower other PoC and minorities is a huge step toward true equality and real, sky's-the-limit cultural self-esteem. However, they'd have to win first in order to get the resources that Mass Challenge offers and that's where you and I come in.
Rissa over at Foundrie is a contributor here at The Superpowered Review and we love to see our best and brightest shine when they've taken steps to aid the diaspora. Check out Rissa's passion as she explains what Foundrie is and what they're trying to accomplish.

When the tracklist was announced and the featured artists revealed, I could remember the buzz that was generated from such an eclectic group
This is nothing new, folks. Most black people know this to be a fact: black exceptionalism often barely seems to meet the bare minimum in a society that values, favors, and awards whiteness above all else. In other words, we don’t have the license to suck.
Go see life through the eyes of someone else. Ask questions. Find out the "why". Please. For the sake of the future. I promise you, if substantive discourse doesn't make any headway, if we keep getting gunned down by people who fear us just because we look different than them or ostracized because of our gender, I promise you: The revolution will not be televised.
Being born white doesn't make you responsible for the mistakes your ancestors made any more than being born black makes you a second class citizen. What being born white does do, is put you in a position to do something very powerful with your place in society. It allows you to speak for those in the back of the class. Change the narrative.
Right now our world is in peril. Our leaders do not care about us. The world is either laughing at us or preparing for what seems to be impending war. Superheroes may seem trivial in the grand scheme of things, but they may be needed now, more than ever.
