About this Project:

We noticed that a lot of people around the world and in schools or even in streets with a darker skin tone gets badly treated and discriminated by people with lighter skin. So we decided to make this app to spread awareness that others with darker skin tones are just the same as we are, and without some of them, we wouldn’t be how we are now.

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Technical Program Manager at Amazon — Emoti-Con Judge
Great concept! I love all the awesome research that went into finding all of these stories of Black excellence to highlight and your app highlights them very effectively. You ended with a call to action for people to get educated about racial profiling and racial justice. Maybe there are some ways to incorporate links to recommended educational materials into your app! You could also consider pushing some of these stories to your users -- like maybe giving them a story of the day or something.

👏 Assoc Dir - Call Center Tech Customer Service at Verizon — Emoti-Con Judge
What a relevant and wonderful concept for inclusion for all. "Get Educated: No Justice No Peace" is a thought provoking, educational and plan for equality of mankind. This was a very detailed presentation by the group to get their point across on the “why” of their inspiration and passion behind their app design. To extend your call to action for people everyone, you may want to obtain sponsorships from individual community leaders, non-profit organizations and/or corporations. Once you obtain your sponsorships, they need to provide testimonials that can allow more supportive messages to be provided on your app!
