A new nationwide poll, “Crossing the New Digital Divide: Connecting to Mobile Economic Empowerment,” identifies a significant gap between African-Americans’ enthusiastic embrace of mobile technology as consumers and the community’s ability to recognize and capitalize on mobile technology as a vital tool for economic empowerment. The survey, conducted for Mobile Future by Cornell Belcher, president of brilliant corners Research & Strategies, surveyed 800 African-Americans nationwide to gain an understanding of why this gap exists and how to create future opportunities for diverse communities.
