    Free Webinar: Engaging America’s Black Diaspora, Nov 12

    The Black audience is far from monolithic, though it is often conceptualized as such. In today’s heightened sociopolitical environment, conversations about race and identity have awakened a desire to reclaim and understand their ancestry, which has important implications for distributors, programmers, advertisers, and brands. Join Horowitz Research & One Caribbean Television on Thursday, November 12 from 2-3:30 PM, for a free webinar, Engaging America’s Black Diaspora. We will unpack the complexity of the Black diaspora in the United States and focus on how to better serve the diverse Black U.S. market. This event will feature an insightful presentation, panel discussion, and Q&A. Register Here
