Angela Conyers-Benton was recently featured in Fast Company Magazine’s list of “The Most Influential Women in Tech.” But rest assured, Angela’s success in the digital space hasn’t been an overnight affair. Three years ago, Black Web 2.0 was nothing but a dream. One person put their elbow to the proverbial wheel and began the labor of love that birthed Black Web 2.0. From the first post, Angela foresaw a forum where people could come and read about the numerous accomplishments that African Americans have made in the technology section. The seed planted that fateful day in August 2007, has grown into an ongoing discussion of the state of blacks in tech and using technology as a means to achieve dreams and foster ownership.
