Innovative college creative network and streaming platform Quadio has announced their “Black History Month Club”—a series of events to celebrate the month by highlighting the contributions of Black artists and music professionals to global music culture in partnership with The Aux. Programs were shown every Wednesday and attendees had the opportunity to grow their network and gain actionable knowledge and skills from established Black artists and industry pros with experience in breaking Black talent.
Quadio’s Chief Growth Officer Miranda Martell said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with The Aux for Black History Month Club. From the moment we were introduced, the strong synergy between our two brand missions—to champion emerging talent—decided to collaborate on programming an easy one. We’re all so humbled to be joined by incredible guest speakers for our BHMC events this month, and excited to create space to celebrate and support the next generation of Black creatives.”
Co-founder and CEO of The Aux Yacine Niang added, “This Black History Month, The AUX is working closely with Quadio to produce a series of events meant to highlight Black creative’s contributions to contemporary music culture. As a Black-owned and operated media organization, this work is critical to who we are. These digital events give our shared communities a space to learn, network, and connect across identity and experience. It’s been a fantastic first week so far, and we cannot wait for the following events.”
