And incredible brunch that celebrates Black culture when it comes to our leading innovators of the industry. We had the opportunity to speak with many of the honorees. Mya emphasized how important it was to celebrate those in the Black culture who paved the way and continue to succeed. Cari Champion recalls a watershed moment in her career where she says the way the Colin Kaeperknick story was not told truthfully by executives, which dismayed her and lead her to create her own path as journalist. Smyphani Soto is a budding young singer who says she taps into her venerability to writer her best work. These are the leaders of our current generation. Those who stand up for what's right and tap into their gifts to give us the best.
