February 1st, 2020, Atlanta, GA / Giselle Ave. Media — It’s officially African-American History Month 2020, and people all over the nation are paying homage to legendary African-American artists, athletes, scholars, thinkers, entertainers, creators, and more.
Today, I’d like to focus on how Google successfully captured all of our attention during this year’s Grammy Awards show. This ad kind of caught me off guard because — Beyonce, but once I started paying attention, I was blown away by how graceful each “search term” was presented throughout the ad campaign. From “the most searched” tap dancers, to performances, to NASA mathematician, to female poets; each category revealed a legendary African-American “History Maker,” to know!
Overall, this ad instilled a strong sense of African pride into my heart and soul. It reminds me of how much of an impact African-American people continue to have on the world today. Most importantly, its a visual representation of why I started Giselle Ave., and why I will continue to make my dream a reality. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and this Ad is truly an inspiration to us all! Cheers to Google, this is how you kick-off Black History Month!
Everyone should have a chance to make history.
