6493: BHM 2009.

Must admit, did not love these ads at first. It’s a standard practice to commission Black artists for BHM. Will Kadir Nelson and Musiq Soulchild get work from Coke later in the year on a non-BHM assignment?

Anyway, Craig Brimm of Kiss My Black Ads made poignant and provocative comments on the series. Plus, check out this interview with Nelson.

And somebody please hire the artists for non-BHM assignments.
