Title created by ACMA staff based on transcription from physical asset and contents of recording.
Speakers talk about publicity, and how to promote an organization or event. Specifically, they talk about different types of media or external publicity, the difference between external publicity and internal publicity, and how to decide which type of publicity is best for a particular circumstance. Zora Martin-Felton explains the difference between a news article and a feature article, and how to develop a public relations packet. Workshop participants work together to create a public relations packet for an exhibition on George Washington Carver. John Kinard talks about George Washington Carver, making something out of nothing, and the under representation of African Americans in museum exhibits.
