In honor of Black History Month, I thought I’d share a little about the Black History I was honored to be a part of.

As a graduate of Michigan State University’s advertising program, and 18 months under my belt as a J. Walter Thompson account exec on Gillette, I was fortunate to join the team that created some of the most memorable advertising campaigns for McDonald’s and other consumer brands at Burrell Advertising, then the nation’s most sought-after African-American ad agency.

Please take time to hear what Tom Burrell has to say about this important time that still influences advertising today.

At the 9:17 mark, note the young Burrell account exec on McDonald’s, seated at the far right of the round table in Tom Burrell’s Chicago office.

Thanks,Tom Burrell, for the opportunity to learn every single day and make history with you!
