LA EVENTS: The Black Experience in a White 9-5

There’s a Facebook friend of mine that I’ve admired from a distance for some time named Shani Byard. My brother-friend DJ A-ski told me to awhile back to connect with this woman as she and I have much in common regarding the work we do. Shani is the founder/executive director of Message Media Ed: School of Black Leadership in the Digital Age. Often, Shani posts events that Message Media Ed is hosting and this week’s event is one I could not resist sharing. I’m doing to my very best to be in the house for this:

Message Media Ed’s Community Bridge Initiative and Monthly Lecture Series present… The Black Experience in a White 9-5″ featuring special guest Writer and Producer of the web series, “the Unwritten Rules,” Kim Williams!

Join us for a screening and interactive chat with Kim about the many nuances African Americans experience in a White dominated corporate company. Funny, enlightening, reflective stuff!
