    Hi April,

    Thank you for your thought-provoking article! I’d love to offer some names of rising African American talent in public media — content producers, administrators, and executives too!

    I’m traveling out of town and won’t have access to internet or phone next week. Would you be willing to accept entries after the Feb 28 deadline?

    Also, many public media stations are just about to start their most important pledge drives of the fiscal year (March TV and April Radio). Perhaps it might be worthwhile to consider extending the deadline for your great idea beyond Black History month?

    PBS is hosting Diversity and Inclusion meetings and recently held one here in Atlanta. You may want to reach out to the organizers of that effort to help get the word out about what you’re doing here with Current.

    I’d love to talk with you more about all of this. Would you be open to a brief chat on the phone soon?

    Thanks again for doing this!

    Aishah
