AfroToronto.com is a Toronto-based Afropolitan platform showcasing local events as well as black community, arts & culture stories from a global perspective. The site was launched on February 4th, 2005 by three African-Canadian young professionals out of a desire to provide a single destination on the internet to reflect the best in the arts, culture and lifestyles of Toronto's multifaceted Afro-Canadian community. The site is now managed by one of the original founders, Meres J. Weche. AfroToronto.com is a vibrant one-stop online hub providing the latest in both Toronto and international black community features and news from original articles, podcast episodes, and various curated sources. The site focuses on the arts, books, culture, lifestyle, community, and business. AfroToronto.com is part of Culture Shox Media. Culture Shox Media was founded in 2006 by Meres J. Weche, and currently publishes several other online properties such as: TorontoJobsBoard.com, Toronto-Franco.com (created by the same three original partners in 2004), SearchTravelDeal.com, Outwardbounders.com, and DigitalMediaGig.com.
