9833: Ad Age BHM Rebuttal.
Must say the Advertising Age Black History Month celebration was pretty lame. No offense to the Black executives spotlighted in the series, but there really wasn’t a lot of new ground covered. Additionally, segregating the interviews in The Big Tent lessened the chance of non-Black readers perusing the content. Why are White adpeople allowed to hide during the event? Like dealing with diversity, Black History Month should be an opportunity for everyone to engage and enhance personal cultural competence. Ad Age should have asked White leaders the same questions posed to the Black executives. The trade publication minimally could have produced something like the piece below (click to enlarge).
