Calling all young hip hop fans! REVOLT Summit x AT&T is back in 2020 and you’re definitely going to want to join the festivities. Being entirely virtual and free of charge this year, the three-day event is taking place on Oct. 23 – 25. It will include fun activations such as the Be Heard music competition, insightful masterclasses, informative panels with today’s hottest talents, interactive workshops, the return of AT&T Office Hours, fun performances, and much more.
To kick the Summit off, a digital series titled “ROAD TO SUMMIT – THE WORLD IS YOURS” will debut on Sept. 19. There will be five episodes of this series — which follows some rising entrepreneurs, creators and artists as they chase their dreams — with one airing per week leading up to the main event. Oh yeah and did we mention that this show is also co-produced by Teyana “Spike Tey” Taylor & the Aunties? We’re here for it!
Like last year’s inaugural REVOLT Summit, this year’s will continue with the mission to motivate tomorrow’s Black and brown movers and shakers. “The goal of the REVOLT Summit is to empower and inspire the next generation of leaders,” says REVOLT Media & TV Chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs. “Last year we had huge success in Atlanta and Los Angeles, and this year we are opening up the REVOLT Summit to the world. This is a pivotal moment in history, and we are bringing together the best minds in entertainment, political activism and business to share their experiences, educate and motivate our community.”
Detavio Samuels, REVOLT Media & TV COO, adds: “As we face a critical moment in our history, it’s more important than ever that we create an experience anchored in empowering the next generation of cultural leaders and elevating the Black community globally.”
“AT&T is thrilled to be back with REVOLT this year for the first-ever virtual Summit. We recognize the value of Black-owned businesses and continue to put resources towards initiatives that focus on fostering economic growth and innovations within the communities we serve,” says Corey Anthony, Chief Diversity Officer, AT&T. “Now more than ever before, it’s imperative for communities of color to bring our voices together and lead our future generations to success.”
