James A. Samuel, Jr., an Intelligence expert with more than 30 years of experience working for the federal government, has developed a new app to help save Black lives.

The ANJEL Tech app is cloud-based and geospatially-enabled. James comments, “My team and I ultimately created this app to help Black moms protect and save their kids’ lives, and help more Black children live and grow into adulthood and meet those expected life milestones such as school graduation, marriage, family/ children, career, homeownership, etc.”

James says that the app was created in response to the May 2020 killing of George Floyd, and what makes the app so unique is that users can easily live-stream what’s happening, immediately notify family members and friends of their location on a map (via text and email), and create a secure record of the incident for future accountability purposes. All of this occurs in real-time via the app.
