On February 28, 2023, The MLC will host a short but meaningful series of Instagram Live sessions with inspirational Black founders and changemakers in music.
The MLC's "Black History-in-the-Making" Instagram Live Series recognizes three Black founders of forward-thinking organizations that aim to effect change in the music industry through service and/or innovation. Hosted by Dae Bogan (@daeboganmusic), The MLC's Head of Third-Party Partnerships, each Instagram Live episode will serve as a virtual fireside chat conversation between Bogan and the featured guest to discuss and unpack the core issues centering each founder's work and their challenges and achievements thus far.
Viewers can watch and engage in the chat room on The MLC's Instagram account @mlc_us.
