PVBLIC MEDIA FOR SOCIAL IMPACT SUMMIT 2018
"BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL x RECLAIMING THE CROWN"
A special collaboration with Pvblic Foundation and Rai Group International to start a dialogue to directly address current adverse cultural and social issues world wide. The discussion will encourage corporate brands to participate in the Black is Beautiful x Reclaiming the Crown campaign, which promotes SDG 16 "Peace, Justice, and Strong institutions" by influencing the strategic implementation of a brand's inclusion of peaceful positive imagery and proper cultural representation for people of color world wide.
RAI GROUP INTERNATIONAL is proud to be a participant in the 2018 United Nations PVBLIC MEDIA FOR SOCIAL IMPACT SUMMIT and is honored to present Black is Beautiful X Reclaiming the Crown. This year's panel discussion is inspired by the iconic works of the legendary Kwame Brathwaite Sr. and contemporary sculpture artist Joanne Petit-Frère. Black is Beautiful X Reclaiming the Crown will set the narrative for our approach to the accomplishment of SDG 16 Peace and Justice for all.
