CNN recently came to town to interview Duane Johnson (MPP '10) as part of its "Black in America" series. Johnson co-founded Tuloko (tuloko.com), an online database that lists African American owned businesses and events. The show airs in December 2013.
From the Insight News story:
"As an upcoming installment of CNN's 'Black in America' hosted by Soledad O'Brien, the provocative series will focus on African-American businesses and economic empowerment. One of the businesses to be featured is a start-up developed right here in the Twin Cities. Not so ironically, the business' mission is to connect African-American consumers to African-American businesses.
The brainchild of Duane Johnson and Sean Armstrong, Tuloko (www.tuloko.com) is an internet-based search site listing and highlighting Black-owned businesses in various metropolitan cities throughout the country. As the duo explained, Tuloko is like an Angie's List or Yelp, but specifically geared towards generating traffic to Black-owned businesses."
