How 'The Talk' Showed, Finally, That Black Girls Cannes

It was the first time many people saw a black American woman take the stage for a Grand Prix

Last Friday in Cannes, P&G won two Grand Prix awards in film, including one for “The Talk.” Through the cheers and bright lights, I made my way to the stage along with others to accept the award on P&G’s behalf. As the Cannes Lion award presenter placed the award in my hand, I not only accepted it, this moment signaled to the advertising and marketing industry that, yes: Black girls Cannes.
