AT&T honors African American trailblazers with 28 Days program Black History Month

(January 30, 2016) AT&T celebrates acclaimed actress, writer and activist Ruby Dee along with past and current black trailblazers with this year's AT&T 28 Days throughout the month of February. The program spotlights pivotal figures and moments during Black History Month.

AT&T 28 Days will honor those whose achievements uplift the community -- from popular artists and ambassadors, to college presidents and business leaders.

Dee began her career as an employee for an AT&T legacy company in 1943. She spent her days soldering wires on an assembly line at and repairing panels during WWII. Over the years, she turned to her passions: acting and activism. Her story serves as an inspiration to many.

We've teamed up with leaders in business and entertainment to share their stories and advice. Find these inspiring stories and more in a series of videos and articles on AT&T 28 Days. Paul Brunson, matchmaker and relationship coach, believes the key to inspiring others is listening. "Listening is critically analyzing what you're hearing and then acting on it," said Brunson.

- Rey Ramsey, managing partner, Next Sector Capital
- Angela Baskerville, vice president-technology development, AT&T
- Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick, president, Howard University
- Ambassador Andrew Young, chair, Andrew Young Foundation

Check out Moments that Matter for behind-the-scenes photos from pivotal events. See a new moment each week during February. We will also highlight 3 groups that support the community: National Action Network, U.S. Black Chambers Inc., and the National Urban League.

"We're proud to support the extraordinary efforts and achievements of all of the communities we serve. We feel much excitement about the unfolding history around us," said Jennifer L. Jones, vice president, AT&T Mobility and Diverse Markets.
