Building our children’s character is important as to how they relate in sports. Our Afrokids® website digital media products specialize in character building while utilizing visual media through today’s technologies.
Because of the changes in demographics and emphasis of the current educational systems and programming content, we feel that the African American has again been placed in the back of the bus. Therefore, our focus is on the African American market with parents, caregivers, and relatives of children 4 years to 12 years of age who need to feel proud of themselves and their heritage.
Leo Sullivan Multimedia, Inc.’s Afrokids® subscription website will address the growth and social awareness of youth through character building content for digital distribution.
This is an opportunity to combine both education and programming to meet the needs of the African American family by providing positive images that will engage, educate and entertain young minds.
