Angela Ford

The Obsidian Collection
Angela Ford is the Founder and President of The Obsidian Collection, focused on reclaiming the Black Narrative by digitizing Black history of the global Black Diaspora. This effort includes getting the images and articles of Black newspapers, photographers, organizations, community and privately-owned archives into the marketplace and on the Internet. Today’s effective journalism in the Black Diaspora depends heavily on access to accurate history of the past. For AI (artificial intelligence), the metadata for Black images and information are critical. For decades, Black history was only recorded by Black legacy newspapers and photojournalists. Once hidden for generations, OCA is making available images and other information to the public. Obsidian is not only illuminating the stories but building platforms to help global Black Media tell the stories. With 30+ years’ experience as an entrepreneur, she has the skills and fortitude to bring this cultural history to the world. She has a B.S. in Management from Illinois State University.
