11428: Preparing For Advertising Week.

Where Are All The Black People? has undergone a makeover, de-emphasizing the W in Where and altering the title to read: Here Are All The Black People. Ironically, all the Black people in advertising actually could be accommodated by a single New York City venue. The Advertising Week Official Guide features an ad where Black now covers Hispanic, Native American, Indian and Asian—but doesn’t include African American. At the website, the speakers for the September 23 event are TBD. And a quote from Jeff Goodby reads, “I loved this event. One of the most moving things I’ve done all year.” Not sure his words will hold up for 2013.
