Big steppas only

In honor of National Publicist Day, we’re celebrating the men who guide careers, connect move-makers with power-players, and make the “impossible” a reality while navigating a notoriously thankless industry.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Black men make up only 5.9% of the global PR industry so it’s only right that we showcase the dapper dot-connectors, deal-closers and doers in an essential gallery we invite you to enjoy below:
