Culture Creators Announce 2nd Annual Awards Brunch in Partnership with VIBE Saturday June 24 during BET Awards Weekend
(Los Angeles, CA) — On Saturday June 24, 2017, Culture Creators will host its second annual Awards Brunch in Los Angeles, CA in partnership with VIBE. This exclusive invite-only gala begins at 11am sharp.
Now a BET Awards Weekend tradition for two consecutive years, the event recognizes the achievements of leaders, influencers, and positive forces throughout the African American community who galvanize and inspire the next generation via unparalleled work ethic, commitment to excellence, and groundbreaking innovation. Working with Vibe, Culture Creators highlights leaders whose influence ushers the culture forward.
The brunch also benefits the “Culture Creators Scholarship at Howard University.” The scholarship supports graduating Howard seniors pursuing degrees in the creative fields of theatre arts, marketing, media, film, television, and music, inspiring the expansion of a culturally diverse executive and talent base. The event also celebrates the creation of the Culture Creators Foundation that will benefit all students studying at historically African American colleges and universities.

Past honorees have included industry mavens such as Ethiopia Habtemariam, Michael “Blue” Williams, Juliette Jones, Yvette Noel-Schure, Mark Pitts, Chris Atlas, Andre Harrell, DJ Drama, and many more.
About this year’s brunch, Culture Creators founder and Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand Partnerships at Atlantic Records, Joi Pitts comments, “Last year, the energy in the room was nothing short of electric. We filled the room with powerful people of color, of all ages and backgrounds unified in the cause of uplifting the next generation to ensure that we are providing more diversity to fill the seats at the table.”
