UPTOWN magazine and Lincoln partnered to present The Journey, an integrated experiential program celebrating the journeys of successful and influential African Americans from various fields, including film, the arts, epicurean, entrepreneurship and social responsibility.
The Journey is featured in four markets across the country, including Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. The Dallas event was held at eM The Venue, where Lincoln displayed two of the 2013 Lincoln MKZ models. Guests were greeted with a short questionnaire to determine what type of mind they had and were gifted with a professional photo and a quote that described their personality type. Later, the guests were directed to the room for a panel discussion.
The panelists included Dallas’ own, news anchor Shon Gables; Gail Warrior, entrepreneur, philanthropists and founder of The Warrior Group; and Larry Yarrell, co-founder of the Marcus Graham Project. They were very open and candid as they shared their own personal journeys and stories on the panel moderated by on-air commentator Bevy Smith. The discussion was followed by a networking reception featuring the 2013 Lincoln MKZ.
