"Afro City" creators say ”The best way to describe Afro City would be “Sex in the City” meets “Girlfriends” with an Afrocentric twist and fabulous fashion to match. We created “Afro City” to show the world that African America women are beautiful with their natural Afro hair without conforming to societies typical “standard” of beauty. We wanted to bring these beautiful images and lifestyles to the screen that people aren’t use to seeing everyday in the media and the web allows us to do that without going through the traditional hoops in Hollywood in order to get these images seen and these stories told. The Afrocentric market is such an under served market and we want to fill the void by showing Afrocentric images and themes with a positive message in all of our programming. http://www.AfroCityTV.com Creator, Rhonda Ray says "I think the future is definitely looking bright for web series of all genres and I’m so glad to be apart of this revolution that’s being televised on the web."
