ATT Presents Dream In Black 2019
The AT&T “Dream In Black” Black Future Month launches by celebrating people who are making history now while shaping the new future. Black Future Month highlights inspiring black creators
Week-over-week, they will roll out their futurists and the display will culminate on the 28th with the last futurist being selected by you in a competition-style. The organization invites everyone to connect with AT&T this month by posting a photo/video sharing history in the making by using #DreamInBlack for a chance to be honored as the Dream in Black 28 Future Maker.
In addition to selecting key figures, other initiatives have been added to the celebration. The organization has also taken the liberty to highlight movie and television shows that African Americans should pay attention to as they are currently changing the scope of how we view ourselves on television. Shows include True Detective, black-ish, Empire, God Friended Me, American Soul, The Chi, Power, This is Us, 2 Dope Queens, and Greenleaf, to name a few.
AT&T continues to support organizations like Black Girls Code by supplying them with financial resources that allow young black girls to continue to create and innovate. Their latest check was a capital infusion of $350,000, which was used to increase access to technology and entrepreneurship skill-building opportunities for underserved and underrepresented youths.
including Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer, Reginae Carter, Terrence J, Phoebe Robinson, DeVon Franklin, Zendaya, Van Jones, Vic Mensa, Lena Waithe, Omari Hardwick, Jamil Smith, Angela Yee, Baron Davis, and a slew of others.
“I want to say thank you to AT&T for having me on their FIRST EVER Future Makers list! Thank you, I mean there so many absolutely incredible people on this list that are doing such incredible things in the community and I’m honored to be even thought of, so thank you!” – Zendaya
