Earlier in the week, 25 Magazine, AimerAmour.com, and Howard University’s chapter of Endustry Power Players cosponsored the Urban Media Panel, an event that brought the East Coast’s blogging elite to Howard’s campus. Representatives from Concrete Loop, The Jasmine Brand, ReadysetDC, The Smugger, Fab Empire, and DC to BC joined forces to hip students to the media industry. The turnout was splendid. Young people from Howard’s campus and beyond came out to hear words from the masterminds behind some of their favorite blogs. The panel lasted about two hours, and soon after it ended every man present flocked to his Twitter page to talk about the dope event. People were inspired. Connections were made. Resumes and business cards were exchanged.
The Urban Media Panel certainly set the tone for how the rest of 2011 will be for 25 Mag.
