OUTFRONT Media Celebrates Black History Month by Honoring Real-Time History Makers
OUTFRONT Media Inc. (NYSE:OUT) is proud to launch its Black History Month campaign titled, “Making Black History with…” which celebrates Black women and men who are making history in real time.
The “Making Black History with…” campaign showcases Black Americans who are leaders in their respective fields and inspirational role models to Americans of all ethnicities. The “Making Black History with…” campaign will be displayed on digital OOH assets in up to 35 markets across the country during the month of February. The highly visible nature of OUTFRONT’s media provides the perfect canvas to honor the achievements of these trailblazing difference-makers.
The “Making Black History with…” campaign was developed collectively by OUTFRONT’s Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council and a team of creative talent from OUTFRONT STUDIOS, OUTFRONT Media’s in-house ad agency. The billboard template includes the phrase “Making Black History with” customized with the photograph, name, and occupation of each honoree.
“This public celebration of Black History Month very much aligns with OUTFRONT’s purpose to help people, places, and business grow stronger. ‘Making Black History with…’ reinforces our commitment to the communities in which we work and most importantly, our promise to our employees. And our highly visible and dominant media network enables us to share this campaign broadly across the U.S.,” said Jodi Senese, Chief Marketing Officer at OUTFRONT Media.
