RNC Launches Black History Month Ad Campaign

RNC Communications - February 3, 2014

WASHINGTON – In recognition of Black History Month, the Republican National Committee today announced a series of paid advertisements placed with black media outlets in urban markets. It is a first of its kind ad buy recognizing the accomplishments of black Republicans making an impact on the American landscape.

The buy includes 30-second radio spots to run on Radio One network stations in the Washington, DC; Atlanta, Georgia; Cleveland, Ohio; and Detroit, Michigan, media markets. Print ads will run in The Washington Informer newspaper.

The radio ads highlight three accomplished black Republicans: Judge Sara J. Harper of Ohio, Dr. Louis Sullivan of Georgia and Michigan businessman Mr. William “Bill” Brooks. These three individuals are the 2014 honorees at the RNC’s 2nd Annual Black Republican Trailblazer Awards Luncheon on February 4, 2014.

The print ads pay tribute to nationally recognized black Republicans including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; Senator Tim Scott; Saratoga Springs, Utah, Mayor Mia Love; Senator Hiram Revels, and Frederick Douglass.

“This Black History Month, we are excited about the unique opportunity to share the remarkable stories of black Republicans who have broken barriers and opened doors so that others may succeed. Recognizing these truly accomplished trailblazers through black media is an important opportunity to honor our past and build our future,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
