Freddie Taylor is an entrepreneur, speaker, history enthusiast, philanthropist, and the founder of Urban Intellectuals (UI).
Spurred by the lack of Black history instruction that his sons received in grammar school, Freddie knew the onus was on him to create a new narrative of Black culture, and in 2009, UI was born.
UI is an online hub of Black media that boasts over one million Facebook fans, a mobile app, and its own social media network.
Over 350,000 Black History Flash Cards have been sold and featured in: Essence, HuffPost, CBS Chicago, Good Morning Washington, Milwaukee PBS, ABC News Live, and Sister Circle on TV One. UI enjoyed a 2019 Black History Month collaboration with JetBlue, featuring the flashcards in the JFK (NY) and Newark (NJ) airports. Additionally, UI received 2021 All Black National Convention’s Black Business of the Year award.
