MOBE Symposium kicks off Black History Month with a timely panel discussion on the State of Black America.
Online PR News – 29-January-2021 – Washington, D.C. – MOBE (Marketing Opportunities in Business and Entertainment) Symposium presents a panel discussion on The State of Black America Monday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. EST which can be viewed via the Symposium’s Facebook Live and YouTube Live channels. The program is part of the organization’s MOBE Monday Live Webinar series, which began in April 2020.
Noted market researcher Pepper Miller will lead the discussion featuring certified financial expert and author Bishop De’Andre Salter; Tiyale Hayes, SVP, brand strategy and marketing, BET Networks; Arva Rice, president & CEO of New York Urban League; and Cheryl Grace, SVP, global marketing and consumer engagement, Nielsen IQ. The panel will ponder what the future holds for Black Americans particularly as 2020 provided the concurrent challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic, which has disproportionately affected people of color, and the countless displays of systemic racism exhibited by law enforcement, corporate America and persons of privilege. The panelists will also examine how Black women exerted greater influence, most notably in politics, during the latter portions of last year.
Since MOBE Mondays launched as a weekly program in April 2020, an audience of more than 100,000 people have tuned in to include achievers, influencers and independent thinkers from major brands such as AARP, BET, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Nielsen, New York Life, The OWN Network, Proctor & Gamble, Revolt TV and Sony.
