And so, last Wednesday, AT&T concluded its 28 Days Black History Month campaign at the Millennium Centre in Southfield, Michigan. During the entire month of February, AT&T sponsors a campaign that aims to motivate consumers to take a forward look at Black History Month as they create history of their own. Hosted by comedian and radio personality Rickey Smiley, the AT&T 28 Days campaign celebrated its fifth anniversary as it commenced its schedule in Washington D.C. with acclaimed speaker and writer, Kevin Powell, delivering the keynote address. From there, the campaign visited Raleigh-Durham, Atlanta, and lastly Southfield. Other speakers included social media expert Corvida Raven and hip hop artist MC Lyte.
I wanted to share some great and exciting news with everyone. Last Thursday, I received an invitation to cover an event for Black History Month, which is being sponsored by AT&T. Delivering the keynote address will be political journalist and activist Jeff Johnson. And also in attendance delivering a musical performance will be rhythm & blues sensation Elle Varner. The event will be hosted by Rickey Smiley. With my invitation, I not only get to cover the event for my site, I also receive VIP access to a meet and greet after the event with the special guests. Again, this is very exciting for me. It is always humbling when someone recognizes and appreciates the work you do. For more details, check out the information below.
