Everyone wants to talk about race these days and thank heavens. Radio One is sponsoring an event at the One Club in New York titled – “Urban Legends: What Corporate America Still Misunderstands About Black People.” They don’t mince words. Panelists include Catherine L. Hughes, founder and chairperson of Radio One; Steve Stoute, founder and CEO of Translation; Najoh Tita-Reid, director of multi-cultural and African American marketing at Proctor & Gamble; and Julius Dunn, program director for The One Club’s Adversity Program. The event will be held on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 from 9:30 am – 11:00 am.
I tell you what – I might just go to see Steve Stoute. Remember that video we posted of him talking about Janet Jackson’s, Nipplegate? He’s got a dry humor that might be even better enjoyed live. Check out a much more staid version of Steve from his induction video into the AAF’s Hall Of Achievement.
