The BONN Group Trumpets the Arrival of Black Media Month

The BONN Group announces the arrival of Black Media Month which runs the entire month of October. This annual celebration recognizes and honors the contributions of Black Americans to all forms of media.

Press Release – September 30, 2011 - Dedicated to the mission of bringing national attention to the contributions of Black owned and operated media throughout American history, Black Media Month promotes annually throughout October the discussion of the history, growth, diversity, accomplishments and influence of Black media.
During Black Media Month, Americans of all ethnicities are encouraged to explore today’s Black media by reading newspapers and magazines, and visiting blogs and web sites which are published and written by and for black people. In addition, we will encourage everyone to read novels, drama and poetry written by black authors, watch black films and television, listen to black radio stations and so forth.

The BONN Group believes that Black Media Month will serve to get past the negative coverage of Blacks and help to develop a better understanding of Black culture and Black media today. It will show the diversity of opinion among Blacks and will reveal that many Black challenges and interests are remarkably similar to those of the nation at large.

While one of the most important contributions of Black media has been its focus on issues affecting a diverse nation of Black Americans, Black Media Month will show that Black media is a diverse, global minded, reliable, credible and informational resource that is involved in the economic, social and political debates taking place throughout the nation and the world and all media is encouraged to support Black Media Month by providing a mention to its readership and viewer ship.

Summary: The Bonn Group continues to promote a discussion of Black media during Black Media Month via a promotional outreach to traditional major media outlets, communications departments at colleges and universities, public schools, public library systems, government, the internet and other identifiable resources.
