Austin, TX, March 23, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Made Media Group, an affiliate to AMC Publishing, LLC announces the launch of Achievements in Black Austin; print edition. The first installment of a series of multimedia products aimed at telling the stories of countless influential and instrumental African Americans who call Austin, Texas home.
Achievements in Black Austin, A Historical Reference, highlights the contributions of more than 250 professional and community leaders in and around the Austin community. This glossy paperback is a virtual “Who’s Who” of local African Americans in Central Texas.
Anita C Roberts, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, explains, "Austin is a city with an incredibly talented, professional and vibrant black community, past and present. Achievements in Black Austin starts from the beginning, in 1839, four months after Austin was founded, when the first documented person of African decent, a 10-year old, named Mahala, arrived in Travis county with the Murchison family." She goes on to say, "We travel through Austin’s storied but significant past to our present day community and professional giants. So many, there was no way to include them all in this first edition."
Roberts says, “The next phase, a video series, debuts this summer. You’ll get to see and hear some of these incredible individuals tell their stories in their own words.”
Nelson Linder, President, Austin NAACP, believes this is an opportunity to remind our community of the valiant contributions of those Austinites who've paved the way for so many. "This book, this entire project is long overdue," he said.
The June 2017 ceremony to unveil Achievements in Black Austin, print edition is planned to coincide with Austin’s Juneteenth celebrations. We look forward to a complete marketing campaign, including digital and online advertising. Also, look for us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. #achieveblackaustin https://youtu.be/-vxORJ9jxtw
