Fox Soul has teamed with Black Enterprise to bring original programming that highlights black creatives, executives, and cultural movers and shakers as they continue their mission to celebrate black history in the making.
The first original series from the new partnership Economic Equity and Racial Justice Town Hall is entitled “One Year After George Floyd: Has Corporate America Made Good on its Economic Equity Pledges?” and is set to premiere on the streaming service Thursday, June 10 at 7 pm EST.
“Partnering with FOX SOUL to broadcast Black Enterprise’s video content gives us the opportunity to expand our reach and continue to uplift, enlighten and educate audiences by telling positive black stories,” Justin Barton, Vice President of Digital Strategy & Partnerships at Black Enterprise, said.
Black Enterprise’s first special is a dynamic solutions-based dialogue hosted by Manulife and featuring the foremost leaders on corporate issues, business, and social justice. Panelists will include CNN Political Commentator Bakari Sellers, Civil Rights Attorney Ben Crump, Vice President of Talent Management at Manulife Tara John, Founder of Black Executive CMO Alliance Jerri DeVard, Infor Chairman Charles Phillips, and President & CEO Executive Leadership Council Michael C. Hyter.
“We look forward to showcasing our Digital Web Shows, Virtual Conferences, and Economic Equity & Racial Justice Town Hall Series to the FOX SOUL audience on a daily basis; I said from day one that FOX SOUL was about more than just streaming content. After the initial discussion with Black Enterprise, it became crystal clear that we had a shared vision to entertain, educate and inspire our culture. Black Enterprise has been elevating the culture for as long as I can remember, and I’m honored that they see FOX SOUL as a valuable brand to align with. I look forward to this new partnership and what it has to offer,” said James DuBose, Head of FOX SOUL.
