Share Fort Wayne Ink Spot

Some of the best stories are waiting to be heard. It’s our job to tell them.

Bryant Rozier has been telling stories from the African American community for a long time. In the past, stories from minority communities have simply been overlooked. Now, he’s giving them the platform they deserve.

With his design and production company Scrambled Egg(s), Bryant has taken history and culture and made it relevant. As managing editor of the Fort Wayne Ink Spot newspaper, he tells stories from the heart of the African American community in Fort Wayne. He wants to marry the two and create a graphic issue of the Fort Wayne Ink Spot newspaper to tell stories in a whole new light.

Creating a graphic issue of this black-owned newspaper will set the groundwork for more stories to be heard, more exposure for the African American community, and bring history and present day to vibrant life.

Bryan Rozier is a Fortitude Founder whose innovative idea could positively impact the stories and generations of the African American community in Fort Wayne. His idea can grow and expand under the guidance and networking available at the Fortitude Fund and put our great city on a national stage.
