The goal of IBNN is to provide a different view of the local, national and global news and events that happen in the Black communities around the world.

IBNN is an affiliate of Black Politics in Minneapolis, Radical Black USA and other African American news sources. Comments, concerns and questions can be emailed to ibnnnews@gmail.com
