Allen Media Group continues to lead the Black-Owned Media Matters Movement with the inaugural Black-Owned Media Upfront 2021. Presented by TheGrio.com, Byron Allen’s premier African American-centric streaming news and entertainment brand, the Black-Owned Media Upfront 2021 will take place on Wednesday, May 26, noon-2 PM EDT.
Its core focus is economic inclusion across all sectors of the U.S. business marketplace and most specifically on the multi-billion-dollar American advertising industry.
The Black-Owned Media Upfront 2021 will define “Black-owned media,” explain why advertisers and their agencies should allocate a minimum of 5% of their annual media budgets to this group and include presentations from other Black-owned media companies.
This webcast will foster meaningful partnerships and a cultural exchange of ideas and opportunities.
