Today’s #abphoto365black #blackhistory #photochallenge pic is not mine but I’m so happy @kristikathy sent it to me! Her words – "We used to be competitors at competing stations. I was blessed to join 13 ABC and instead of competing we became good friends. We have spent more than 12 years advocating for the community and bringing attention to those stories that matter. We’re media sisters, bound by the core values to inform and uplift our community. #13abc. #Media #Sisters. #diversity @ammeans

Day 5 of the #abphoto365black #blackhistory #photochallenge pic includes one of my old college classmates @Jeffsnation. I remember following him around as a freshman not knowing what I was doing, but it was a great experience being a part of the #black student union with Jeff as president in the mid 90’s at #UT. Now he is making history in the #MEDIA. Blessings to all of US in the media, I know it’s not easy!

Project 365 Black history month 2014 Toledo Edition

For my project 365 for February I am issuing a photo challenge to everyone that would like to participate. (See list below). The point of the photo challenge is to use a word from the list each day take a picture of something that represents black history related to that word.

 The goal is to show how black history lives in our cities in our families and our selves we are black history all of us can find something that can represent what African-Americans have done for this country and our everyday life.

At the end of the project my intention is to publish a collage of all of the pictures collected with the #aBphoto365black and display it in the Toledo public library thank you for participating and I hope you stop back to see some of the things that we will be capturing during February 2014. Thank you!
