Invest in American Legacy Network

"The preservation of African-American history is our collective responsibility. Now more than ever before, we must strive every day to hold our history in trust for the unborn."


Rodney J. Reynolds 

Founder, American Legacy Network

For over 23 years, the mission of the American Legacy brand (magazine, board game, mobile truck exhibit, black history curriculum guide and television program) has been to preserve and celebrate African-American history and culture. American Legacy has been a catalyst in preserving the African-American experience in America. Our transition to television is the next step in the brand's evolution. 

Why American Legacy Network? Simply put, to our knowledge, there is currently no network on television today that is totally dedicated to celebrating African-American history and culture on a consistent basis. American Legacy Network will fill the void with content designed to inspire, empower and educate the black community, especially our youth in America. ALN will be a network that the entire family can enjoy.

We invite you to join American Legacy Network as we celebrate and preserve our rich and noble history!

"Our nation needs more services that provide valuable and differentiated content instead of just another copycat product."

Here's What We've Accomplished!

In 1995 Rodney J. Reynolds launched American Legacy magazine in a joint venture with American Heritage, a division of Forbes, Inc., which lasted nearly 14 years until the Forbes, Inc. business was partially sold to a PE company. Reynolds has developed ALN OTT (Over The Top) based on the magazine he founded. Over the past year, we have developed content to reach our target audience... Content that has been well received!

Here's what viewers are saying about American Legacy Network:

"This is a great venture! It is easy to navigate...this is black history at its finest!"

"An interesting history inviting it!!"

"This is absolutely great to see, I am excited about seeing more of what's to come. Best of luck!"

Our Market and Industry

Viewing Habits Are Changing

In our opinion the media market is continuing to grow steadily and the online sector is expanding the fastest. The home entertainment market is in a state of rapid and extensive change due to the numerous options created by cord-cutting and new devices. The control of content and viewing has shifted from a mass market model where the content owners were in control, to a user centric model where the user has control of what they view and when they view it. ALN will provide those consumers interested in content focused on African-American history and culture a viable option to access for their VOD needs. In our opinion Over The Top (OTT) viewing of television and movies streamed to a device with a broadband connection to the internet is rapidly growing. The ALN distribution model is similar to that being used by Netflix, Hulu and others. 

Cord-cutting is encouraged by services such as Roku which enables viewers to stream content from the internet onto their television, and AppleTV which also enables users to connect their televisions to the internet and stream content into their living rooms. We believe consumers are substituting cheaper broadband services for the expensive monthly cable services.

Now that consumers are able to choose what they want to watch and when they want to, the online entertainment market has grown rapidly and it has fragmented. For much less than they pay for a monthly cable TV subscription, consumers can buy content from a number of different sources and fully satisfy their entertainment needs.  Netflix has proven that a low-cost monthly subscription sold on a 'til forbid basis and paid via credit card encourages end users to stay members. Many find that by cutting cords they lose little of what they desire and open themselves up to discovering more paid sources of content (like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon). In our opinion this causes them to make a lower cost commitment. Like the other low priced services, ALN is tailored to meet the demand of the new user centric market. 

Viewers can watch ALN via their television, web & mobile devices

Strong Growth Forecast

According to the McKinsey & Company Global Media Report 2015 broadband expansion will drive overall digital spending. Digital spending as a whole, according to McKinsey, will increase at a 9.5 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate, well above the 1.7 percent projected for non-digital spending. The digital components of the market will generate 82 percent of the total increase in media spending, surpassing the non-digital components in 2019 and accounting for 50.3 percent of global media spending.

What Makes Our Team Special

The American Legacy Network team is led by Rodney J. Reynolds who in 1995 developed a joint venture with American Heritage, a division of Forbes, Inc. to launch American Legacy magazine which brought him national recognition for his ingenuity and inventiveness in publishing. The magazine achieved a readership of over 2 million over a 15 year period. Reynolds will lead a team of individuals with deep experience in media and technology and financial services.

Invest in ALN Today!

Companies of all types--large and small, established and just starting out--with content that centers on a specific theme can now compete for a segment of the overall entertainment and information market that was once controlled only by larger players. Cloud technology and the proliferation of digital devices have made it easier for content owners and developers with libraries of video and filmed entertainment assets to sell directly to end users. End users are choosing their own schedules for viewing content from a growing number of choices for online services. Consumers interested in African-American history oriented content now have a choice. That choice is American Legacy Network (ALN)!

You now have an opportunity to become a stakeholder in an online platform that is not only entertaining; it is inspiring and empowering.  

Join ALN today and make a difference in America!
