MOUNT VERNON, NY—NOVEMBER 13, 2018– American Legacy Network Corp. (ALN), the subscription video on demand (SVOD) streaming service showcasing African American history and culture-themed programming and original content for the whole family, recently announced the launch of its Title III Regulation Crowdfunding online public offering (OPO) via  Start Engine Capital. The company stock began being sold via StartEngine earlier this month.

For over 23 years, the mission of the American Legacy brand (magazine, board game, mobile truck exhibit, Black history curriculum guide, and television program) has been to preserve and celebrate African-American history and culture. American Legacy has been a catalyst in preserving the African-American experience in America. The transition to television is the next step in the brand’s evolution. 

“To our knowledge, there is currently no network on television today that is totally dedicated to celebrating African-American history and culture on a consistent basis,” said Rodney J Reynolds, Founder of American Legacy Network. “American Legacy Network will fill the void with content designed to inspire, empower and educate the black community, especially our youth in America. ALN will be a network that the entire family can enjoy.”

American Legacy Network launched a web/mobile version of the network in August of this year and has plans to release a mobile app later this year. The company is actively seeking additional distribution partnerships for its direct to consumer OTT platform.

NEW YORK, NY—OCTOBER 2, 2014— America is a country obsessed with trends and fads in everything from fashion to beauty to healthy…even religion.

Buona Donna Productions, an independent film company, takes a look at the journey of eight women on their quest to “healthy,” in the riveting new documentary DIE, CRAZY, FAT. Buona Donna will host a private screening on Thursday, October 30th at MIST Harlem in New York City.

“With America’s obsession with diet, exercise and its ever-growing misconceptions, I felt it was vitally important– especially for women– to understand the basics of good health,” said Buona Donna co-Founder, Tonya Conrad. “Faced with my own personal struggles, I wanted to expose the conflicting opinions in the medical and health industries and share insightful anecdotes that would allow others to determine for themselves the true meaning of healthy living; ultimately feeling inspired to take control of their own health.”

Co-founded by Tonya Conrad and Nichole “Nikki” Nichols, Buona Donna Productions is focused on creating films,  programming and other media forums to enhance and enrich the lives of others through the exploration of complex issues that have an impact on their lives including race, class, gender, spirituality, sex and more. Through DIE, CRAZY, FAT, the duo takes a in depth look at physical and mental health, diet, body image and spirituality through the eyes of both themselves and six other women across a diverse spectrum of age, race, and marital status.

The event will begin with a cocktail reception to celebrate the completion of the documentary followed by the screening of the two hour long film.  The reception begins at 6pm followed by the screening at 8pm.
