April Daniels and Ebony magazine launch ‘Rock Out With Me’
April Daniels of WEtv’s “Tamar & Vince” partnered with EBONY Magazine and Wright Productions at Clark Atlanta University on Friday, April 24, 2015, to celebrate the launch of her “Rock Out With Me” campaign. The motive behind the national campaign is to empower and create unity among women from all walks of life. Daniels is on a mission to break the negative stereotypes often associated with women of color. The fabulous event kicked off with red carpet appearances followed by an intense panel discussing the representation of African American women on television and social media.
EBONY’S director of entertainment, Tia Brown, broke down some hot topics with an all-star panel of industry professionals, including: BMI vice president Catherine Brewton; actress Brely Evans; television producer Trevia Williams; “RHOA” creator Princess Banton-Lofters; Atlanta Office of Film and Entertainment’s LaRonda Sutton; reality star Christina Johnson; entrepreneur Monique Rodriguez; and a surprise guest appearance from “Empire” casting director Leah Daniels-Butler.
