Synopsis >

The fourth installment of CNN's flagship documentary series, Black in America, with Soledad O'Brien, follows the inspiring and challenging journey of eight African-American entrepreneurs attempting to make history in Silicon Valley. While the U.S. economy struggles, tech innovators are becoming instant millionaires and investors flood the Valley looking to fund the next Google, Twitter or Facebook. Yet successful African-American digital entrepreneurs are virtually non-existent. In 2010, 1% of all venture capital money went to digital startups with African-American founders. Black in America chronicles the journey of eight entrepreneurs as they attempt to realize their dreams. Who will fail? Who will succeed? And what is the color of opportunity?
