Afro Mic

Afro Mic EMMAs advertising postcard featuring a microphone with an afro was distributed to encourage voting for the EMMA Awards on both telephone lines and the Internet in 2000.

The “Afro Mic” campaign received an advertising award the following year.

This particular campaign was combined with the Indian Snake advertisement.

  “I would like to say to the patrons and people in EMMA that they are doing a wonderful job of cementing solidarity with the people of South Africa. This solidarity has over many years brought the people of Britain and South Africa closer together. I hope that my receipt of this award will in a small way add value to the work that EMMA is doing in promoting cultural diversity and co-operation.”

“Thank you for honouring me the Ethnic Multicultural Media Award for Lifetime Achievement. It is an award I share with all ethnic communities, who have striven to surpass their obstacles and achieve their dreams. As in the United States, Britain is lucky to draw from the talents of a community rich in ethnic diversity. The vital cultural contributions by people of African, Asian, West Indian and Middle Eastern descent are integral to the progress of British culture and business at large.”

  “The power of a movement lies in the fact that it can indeed change the habits of people. This change is not the result of force but of dedication, of moral persuasion.”
