AT&T 28 Days AT&T 28 Days

 

Black innovators have been helping AT&T connect people since Lewis Latimer first drafted plans for Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone in 1876. Since then, AT&T continues to identify and highlight the next generation of black innovators through the annual AT&T 28 Days program.

Black History Month is more than a chance to acknowledge the past. It’s a salute to the people who helped shape cultural moments that changed the world.

AT&T 28 Days celebrates the very best in leaders who match their talents and passions to make an impact in art, entertainment, business, community and technology. Now in its ninth year, AT&T 28 Days honors those who dare to be next. The dreamers, believers and game-changers who show up and show out to make the world better-in ways big and small.

Entrepreneurs like Christine Souffrant – who uses social media to connect people to street merchants around the world –  and Dubelyoo Wright – who uses smart devices to create and display award-winning urban art. Pioneers like Dr. Ian Smith –  who uses tech to engage communities in health and wellness – or the founders of STEMLY, an urban education initiative that encourages black youth to explore careers in the sciences.

Throughout the month of February, AT&T 28 Days will tell these stories through dynamic videos, compelling photo albums, and interactive content. All aimed at showcasing these present-day history makers while giving a nod to the icons of the past.
