Celebrating Triumph through Transition with Mediaplanet’s “Empowering Black America” Campaign

by STEMconnector


The Mediaplanet Empowering Black America campaign aims to empower future leaders, highlight current issues within the African-American community and inspire readers to recognize how their own lives have been influenced by this rich culture.

The print component of “Empowering Black America” is distributed at specific community events, conferences, learning centers and more. The digital component is distributed nationally through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

Celebrity advocates have joined forces with Mediaplanet to lend their voices to this ongoing conversation. Stars of ABC’s “Black-ish,” Yara Shahidi and Marsai Martin, talk about how their culture directly impacts their daily work as well as their future aspirations. They are joined by other leaders in Hollywood and the media such as “Greenleaf’s” Deborah Joy Winans and “Blavity’s” Editor-in-Chief Lilly Workneh.

This campaign was made possible with the support of the NAACP, National Urban League, AIDS United, National Black MBA Association, Army Educational Outreach Program, Gilead, “Blavity,” Yara Shahidi, Marsai Martin, Lilly Workneh, Thrivent Financial Credit Union, STEM Connector, the National Certification Board of Diabetic Educators, and more.
