Tech Intersect #41: Sherrell Dorsey-Storytelling and Trends in the Future-Forward Black Innovation Economy
Nov 03, 2020 Episode 41
Tonya M. Evans

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I speak with Sherrell Dorsey, a data journalist, social entrepreneur, and the founder and CEO of The Plug, a distinctive, Black tech news and insights platform covering Black innovators in tech, venture capital, future of work policy, and more. Sherrell has scaled her new media startup to thousands of subscribers, hundreds of paid members and she’s raised over $500,000 in equity-free capital. Amazing.

Sherrell shares her poignant personal journey, how she’s been doing in the midst of the devastating impacts of the pandemic, and her phenomenal professional ascension … from working for designers and content marketing firms at the intersection of commerce and social media to finding her true shine in tech journalism. She’s contributed to Fast Company, The Root, Next City, and many others. 

And recently, she launched a season one of The Clark Street Project, A narrative episodic podcast that details the evolution of Black business news and entrepreneurship coverage and the journalists who’ve led the charge. One of the most empowering moments to listen out for is when Sherrell reminds us that the pandemic hasn’t changed the mission for Black innovators and entrepreneurs. And she offers some strategies for not only surviving but thriving as we prepare for the fourth industrial revolution and future of work in the tech world. 

If you’re listening to this on the release date, November 3rd, 2020, then I hope you’ve already voted, are on your way, or are in line and listening to pass the time. Get. Out. And. Vote. Our collective future depends on our individual participation in democracy. Let’s make anyone who’s ever been disenfranchised proud. ­
