Celebrating Black PR History: Diverse Voices

For our fourth annual BlackPRHistory event, we are exploring the subject through the personal histories of industry leaders from agencies, corporations and academia. These esteemed panelists are all contributors to  Diverse Voices: Profiles in Leadership, the first-of-a-kind book sponsored by the PRSA Foundation and published last year by PRMuseum Press. During this program, panelists will bring their Diverse Voices to life. This event is brought to you by the Museum of Public Relations in partnership with the PRSA Foundation and the Black Public Relations Society (BPRS) – NY chapter.
