When Writer/Photographer/Content Creator Rashidah De Vore found difficulty getting her projects picked up by different companies and producers, she did what any self-respecting, entrepreneurial-minded woman would do: she created her own way.
After a soft launch in the fall, X On Demand has arrived. A Netflix-style site, it’s a hybrid streaming service and social media site.
“After going through the motions of constantly pitching different projects to production companies and trying to get things off the ground, only to be told that while I was a great writer, my work wouldn’t appeal to white people, I was feeling beat down and thought about other Black creatives who are facing the same obstacles. So, I thought about different ideas and decided on a streaming service,” De Vore told TNJ.com/ in a recent interview.
