During Black History Month, the African-American community celebrates the black experience and all it entails. The month is meant to acknowledge the pivotal moments, leaders, and trends that make the black experience so rich, from School Daze to the “Golden Era” of music, and more. And one organization in particular, Culture Creators, is continuing this celebration in an event that will bring together some of the great influencers who continue to contribute to the culture and experience.
Culture Creators was established to shine a spotlight on the drivers and leaders who shape the views of the black experience through various platforms within the industry. Stepping out of the confinements of just one month, Culture Creators previously hosted an inaugural event in October 2015, which invited leading executives and leaders who have driven and shaped the black music industry. The previous attendees included former VIBE and Essence Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Emil Wilbekin, Michael Kyser, President of Black Music at Atlantic Records, and many others at leading music and entertainment companies.
Last year’s event was a success, and now Culture Creators is back with another night to remember. This year’s Los Angeles event on Feb. 14, will focus on the millennial influencers who have cultivated their own spin on the industry, while still paying homage to the veterans. The host committee is a number of all-star artists, executives, and personalities including the organization’s founder Joi Brown (who is also SVP Marketing, Brand Partnerships at Atlantic Records), singer-songwriter Sevyn Streeter, actor Laz Alonso, famed choreographer and director Fatima Robinson, Revolt TV CEO Keith Clinkscales, I am OTHER’s Head of Music Kawan Prather, Grammy Award winner Estelle and many more.
The event, which will be sponsored by Revolt TV and Seagram’s Gin, will feature a series of networking sessions, panel discussions, and mentoring programs that will continue the mission to create, share, and inspire, the black experience.
