Carter Godwin Woodson (1875 - 1950) was an acclaimed African American historian, author, journalist and founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH).

Through his work with the ASALH, alongside his founding of The Journal of Negro History in 1916, Woodson has been called “the father of black history.” Then, 10 years later, Woodson created the annual “Negro History Week” celebration, which was the precursor of Black History Month. As a speaker, writer, political organizer and a truth-seeker, Woodson helped to humanize the image of Black Americans during a time of gross injustice and mistruth in the publishing space.

With the help of other Black scholars and historians, Carter Woodson dedicated his life to uncovering hidden histories of African-American history and American diaspora. Woodson was born of two former slaves and set out his entire professional career to bring his parents, and other Black Americans descended from slavery, the right to honest historical recounts of their mistreatment.

At the Museum of Public Relations, we work every day to uncover hidden histories of our field. We know that PR textbooks, college curriculums and C-suites of major corporations are not always reflective of the true story behind the state of our industry today. However, it is like Carter Woodson who have helped to open our eyes to the depth and cultural richness of communications.

Follow along with us as we gear up for our 8th Annual Celebration of Black PR history on Feb. 2! We have an amazing lineup of hosts and speakers all for free on Zoom. Whether you are a first-year PR student, or a longtime industry professional, you won’t want to miss it.

Five Ideas for Celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day 2022

Happy ! Last year, President Biden issued a proclamation that, for the first time in U.S. history, recognized the holiday at the national level. began as a counter-celebration to Columbus Day – a federal holiday that glorifies the centuries of colonization faced by Indigenous folks since Columbus’ violent terrorization of Natives.

Currently, 14 states, over 100 cities and a growing number of school districts across the country have formally replaced the observation of Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

With vibrant and varying Native cultures all around the country, there are a million ways to uplift Indigenous communities today. Click here for some ideas on how to celebrate: https://bit.ly/3MxOmtj

07/29/2022

Our mission has always been the same, it just took a while to fully uncover its potential. When the Museum opened 25 years ago, our founders Shelley and Barry Spector came in with a goal to document the complete history of public relations in a way that had never been done before. Along the way, the Museum found that diversity is at the very heart of that mission. We started with the giants like Ivy Lee and Edward Bernays, who was a close friend to the Spector’s and guided them in their journey to opening the Museum’s doors. Today, we know that there are many folks who have been pivotal figures in communications since its inception no matter their cultural background, sexual orientation, or gender.
As we celebrate our 25th anniversary at the Museum of Public Relations, we vow to continue to breathe new life into our mission until the complete story of PR is told.

07/27/2022

The story of how the Museum of Public Relations came to be is a piece of history itself. Reflecting on the last 25 years, we are inspired to see how the Museum can continue to progress powerful communications. Watch to learn more about how founders Shelley and Barry Spector saw a gap that needed to be filled in our industry.

    With right around the corner, we here at the Museum are dedicated to highlighting more of our . Today, we look to CT Hew's (1951-2020) remarkable story in communications.

    CT Hew began his career as a public affairs consultant after graduating from the University of Malaya. He started his agency life at Burson-Marsteller in Malaysia in 1975, eventually serving as MD for Malaysia, regional director for Southeast Asia, and Asia president — a pioneering role at the time for an AAPI practitioner. He was subsequently managing partner of Scotchbrook-BSMG Worldwide for five years, before becoming vice chairman of GolinHarris in Hong Kong. Hew later joined APCO's Hong Kong office before striking out with his own consultancy. Hew was the first chairman of PRHK, when it was formed in 2003 as the Council of PR Firms, reflecting the esteem in which he was held by the industry's leaders. He also served as a part-time member of Hong Kong's Central Policy Unit and was a board governor of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.

    CT Hew spent much of his career working and innovating with some of the top organizations in public relations, and we are dedicated to making sure his story is told. Without constant pressure on trade journals, academics and industry leaders, feats reached by marginalized people in communications are continually looked over. To read more about our pioneers and how our upcoming Celebration of the AAPI Community in PR is honoring them, click here: https://bit.ly/3vk5daz

    We are only five days away from our 3rd Annual Celebration of the AAPI Community in PR, so make sure to grab your digital seat!

    The Museum is dedicated to the members of the AAPI community who have worked in public relations and communications for the past half-century, as many of their names are barely known, and many of their stories are yet to be told. As we strive to attract more young people of the AAPI community into the field, we are shining a light on these extraordinary pioneers. By getting to know the rich heritage of AAPI history in PR and communication, more young professionals will be compelled to join—making their own contributions to business and society.

    The event will be held May 3rd, 7-9PM EST on Zoom, and all seats are free with registration! Click here to learn more: https://bit.ly/3vk5daz

    Our spotlight of the day is on Teodoro "Teddy" Benigno (1923-2005). Remembered for his seven decades as a pioneering journalist and communicator, Teddy was the first Filipino to head a foreign news agency, Agence France-Presse (AFP). Over the 37 years that he served as head of the AFP, Teddy became known for his writings against the excesses of people in power, during the time of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos, who ruled from 1965 until his ouster by a people-backed military mutiny in 1986. He helped launch the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) during the time of the Marcoses.

    Teddy's accomplishments have interesting applications for communicators today. As our country faces influxes of race-based injustices and a growing war against dangerous misinformation, it is the role of the practitioner to connect and communicate for the public good. Unfortunately, Teddy's story and influence remain largely uncovered and undiscussed by the PR industry.

    To continue uncovering stories like Teddy's, the Museum welcomes you to join us on May 3rd, 7-9PM EST for our 3rd Annual Celebration of the AAPI Community in PR. At the event, our speakers and panelists will be illuminating of the past as a means to move forward. All digital seats are free with registration!

    Today’s trailblazing is Maximino J. Edralin Jr. (1931-2022). Edralin was a leading public relations figure for more than 50 years. As a Citibank vice president, he was responsible for raising the profile of the bank as a source of banking talents. He served as a public relations consultant of Bangkok Sentral Filipinas for 22 years. He also served as chairman of the International Public Relations Association (IPRA) Philippine Chapter and was also president of the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP), the Bank Marketing Association of the Philippines, the Boy Scouts of the Philippines, and Operation Smile Philippines and Kannawidan Foundation.

    Despite his undeniable contributions to the field, it is stories like Maximino’s that our industry continually fails to accurately teach and report on. It is imperative to the Museum that these histories are uncovered and adequately communicated to new generations of practitioners. As we know, representation is at the forefront of – and these stories have the ability to illuminate paths forward for AAPI students who are interested in public relations.

    Make sure to visit our website to find more diverse stories of PR’s past and to register for our upcoming Celebration of the AAPI Community in PR on May 3rd, 7-9PM EST on Zoom. Our incredible lineup of PR pros and students will use these unfrequented, yet powerful, stories of communications to set a helpful precedent for young AAPI individuals.

    Today's spotlight is on Renato E. Nieva (1943-2018). In 1987, Renato started Perceptions — a pioneering PR and corporate communications firm in the Philippines. Renato then served four terms as National Chairman of the Philippine Chapter of the International PR Association (IPRA), was a member of the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP) and of the Philippine Association of PR Counselors. In all of Renato's work, he championed innovation and inclusion.

    Although Renato's contributions to communications are long-lasting and of international reach, his story is rarely (if ever) told in PR textbooks or industry trade journals. For the Museum, uncovering the of our pioneers is one of our top priorities.

    To continue learning about historic figures in communications, join us on May 3rd, 7-9PM EST on Zoom for our Celebration of the AAPI Community in Public Relations. During the event, our esteemed panelists and students will commemorate AAPI communicators of the past while looking toward the future of representation and inclusion in the field.

    Yuri Kochiyama (1921-2014), an of the Museum, was a Japanese-American civil rights activist who worked closely with Malcolm X for many years.

    Yuri's activism was greatly inspired by her family's experience in America. In 1941 after the attack at Pearl Harbor, Yuri's father was arrested by the FBI and forcibly placed in an internment camp on the basis of his ethnicity. The six-week duration of his imprisonment caused his health to deteriorate rapidly and Yuri's father died on the day of his release. Soon after, Yuri, her mother and her brother were placed in two different internment sights where they would stay for over two years. After this, Yuri dedicated much of her life's work to advocating for reparations for Japanese-American internees, as well as a variety of anti-war and pro-Black causes.

    With the Museum's 3rd Annual Celebration of the AAPI Community in PR is quickly approaching, it is important to illuminate the work that has inspired our own.

    Happy International ! Created by the UN in 2010, April 20th marks International Chinese Language Day. The day celebrates multiculturalism in Chinese linguistics and pays tribute to the beginning of the sixth solar term in traditional East Asian calendars.

    As the Museum works to illuminate the complete stories of contributions to the PR profession from diverse communities, looking back on in history is always an enriching place to start. Among all of the amazing professionals that have inspired our upcoming Celebration of the Community in PR, Mabel Ping-Hua Lee’s (1896-1966) contributions to communications are poignant on this day of celebration.

    Mabel Ping-Hua Lee was a Chinese-American women's rights activist and minister who campaigned for women's suffrage in the United States.
