AT&T Dream in Black Program
As part of the AT&T Dream in Black Program, AT&T hosted a private, intimate fireside chat moderated by New Orleans Rapper and Activist Dee-1.
The event featured a Q&A with Tip “T.I.” Harris at the AT&T New Orleans store on St. Charles Avenue February 26th.
Tip “T.I.” Harris is on this year’s Future Makers list. Aside from his contributions in entertainment, Harris Is an entrepreneur and activist who has amassed a business empire.
T.I.’s career is one that continues to inspire people that hard work, and believing in yourself, that’s making your dreams into reality possible.
“Throughout my career, I’ve drawn inspiration from the powerful Black creators who have come before me. As an artist and entrepreneur with a public platform, I’m empowered to shine light on African American achievements and encourage the next generation to pursue their dreams and rise above any challenges they may face,” said T.I. to the audience.
Those in attendance were fans chosen through a social media contest that required participants to tell how they are making history and empowering their communities.
Dream in Black is an always-on platform where AT&T celebrates Black culture and the creators who shape it. The platform views the world and creativity through an Afro-futuristic lens that is rooted in AT&T’s technology, innovation and entertainment, which helps power the possibilities.
Each February, AT&T honors Black History Month with a Dream in Black Future Makers list – a celebration of creators who have the courage to Dream in Black and are paving the way in the Black community as they shape the now, the new and the next.
