Tour the revamped America’s Black Holocaust Museum
Join fellow communications professionals as we learn, reflect and have some fun at our August social from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at the America’s Black Holocaust Museum.
The America’s Black Holocaust Museum builds public awareness of the harmful legacies of slavery in the United States and promotes racial repair, reconciliation and healing. The museum was founded in 1984 by the late Dr. James Cameron, a lynching survivor. The physical museum closed on the heels of the economic downturn in 2008, but its exhibits lived on through the Internet and educational programming in libraries, churches and elsewhere. The museum is now opening again in the same, but renovated, location.
The August social will include a guided tour of the museum, food and beverages.
Space is limited, and this is sure to be a popular event, so be sure to register quickly.

The Power of Podcasts
According to statistics compiled by Apple, there are more than 700,000 podcasts available to listeners in 2019 with more than 29 million episodes to choose from. More than half of all Americans say they’ve listened to a podcast, with more than four out of five of those listeners between the ages of 18 and 54. That’s a lot of valuable audience to position your brand in front of.
