Celebrating Black PR History
Wednesday, May 3
Panelists Judith Harrison, SVP Diversity and Inclusion, Weber Shandwick, and president of the PRSA Foundation; David Albritton, Executive Director, Communications, Global Product Development Communications, General Motors; Terry Edmonds, former for speechwriter for President Clinton; Terrie Williams, legendary entertainment publicist to stars like Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock, will shine a light on such notable black PR professionals as Ofield Dukes, Inez Kaiser, Moss Kendrix and Pat Tobin. These PR professionals of the mid-twentieth century are unknown to many young people, and the impact of their careers may serve as great role models while attracting and retaining diverse young people to our profession. Tonight's presentation is the second of its kind, being brought back by the popular demand resulting in the travel-crushing snowstorm — which was coincidentally the date of the first presentation on February 9. Donald Singletary, president of The Singletary Group, and adjunct professor at Baruch College will emcee the event.
