Celebrating Black PR History: Diverse Voices
For our fourth BlackPRHistory event, we explored the subject through the personal histories of industry leaders from agencies, corporations and academia. These esteemed panelists were 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 brought their Diverse Voices to life. This event took place on January 30, 2019 and was brought to you by the Museum of Public Relations in partnership with the PRSA Foundation and the Black Public Relations Society (BPRS) – NY chapter. The live stream of the event may be seen on our Facebook page.
