We recognize and celebrate Black History Month by acknowledging the significant and far-reaching impact the Black community has on the history of the United States. Uplifting and celebrating the Black community is a mainstay of the work we do at P&G, alongside the sustained actions we are taking to help address the systemic challenges facing the community. Throughout February, we will highlight several of our ongoing efforts as we continue to dedicate ourselves to supporting the Black community and honoring its powerful legacy.
We will begin this month by elevating Black creators — and the stories they tell — and how P&G is enabling the Black owned and operated media ecosystem with content that displays the full richness of the Black experience.
Words alone won’t create change. Sustained action and investment are necessary to build momentum and transform moments into movements.

P&G Presents Black History Honors
As part of our ongoing commitment to accurately portray the vastness, resilience, beauty and joy of the Black experience, we partnered with Central City Productions, a Black-owned media company of 52 years producing Black excellence in television programming, to present Black History Honors, a four-part docuseries honoring the heroes of the Underground Railroad.
We understand that reaching underrepresented audiences with accurate, authentic stories helps remove bias and inspire inclusion. That’s why our team focused on Black Owned and Operated Media leads the industry with equitable actions to #WidenTheScreen so we can widen our view.
Earlier this month our team gathered with GRAMMY Award-winner Mali Music and Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, among other dignitaries and friends at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, celebrating the premier of the new annual Black History Month television series.
