Current opportunities:

I am a producer (Bundy Films, LLC) currently working on a documentary film about Virginia Union University (VUU) 1940 CIAA tennis champ and Dream Team member, Mr. Roland McDaniel.   I am seeking a historian to provide historical context to the story and film including:

•   What Richmond was like for African American's in the 1930's
•   What VUU and other HBCU's were like during that time (it's ok if you are not familiar with VUU)
•   What the racial climate in the United States was like at the time
•   The significance of a small Black college beating the all white Long Island University in a championship basketball game (I can give more details on this)
•   and a few other questions.

I would prefer if the expert is in the Maryland, WDC, or Virginia area. Please contact me to view a quick snippet of the film.  Brian Bullock: bundyfilms@gmail.com

Multicultural Advertising Agency:

Lisa, Hope this email finds you well. Wanted to reach out and see if you knew of a solid Hispanic  PR / Media relations shop in NYC? We are looking to partner with someone on a healthcare campaign, so I thought you would know right away. Thank you

Fortune 500 retail company:

"Hello, I was perusing 'The Source Book of Multicultural Experts' and am inquiring as to whether you have any recommendations or insight regarding potential Events agencies that specialize in reaching the multicultural audience, specifically African American and Hispanic.

I am in Marketing and have been working with our Events team to seek out events agencies that can bring us new and more focused thinking.  Thank you."

A sports team organization:

"The Marketing Department is seeking to partner with a multicultural agency that will assist in the creation of a comprehensive strategy taken from our current brand platform and seasonal campaign that resonates with the multicultural communities residing within our trading area."

Fortune 500 packaged goods company:

"We're looking for a research company who provides an online Hispanic panel to conduct product testing. However, this panel has to be somewhat representative of the Hispanic market. Most companies will say they have acculturated Hispanics in their online panel and will complement unacculturated Hispanics with off line methods. That is not our desire...We're truly looking for doing research for unacculturated and acculturated Hispanics on line. If you can help us with that challenge, great."

Produce Suppliers Organization:

"We are seeing a decrease in our business and my goal is to dig into both the Asian market as well as the Hispanic market regarding consumption to see the trends, etc. and then create a program to begin reversing. I just came on board to this 1 year ago so that was put on hold and now I am investigating next steps. Do you have any direction / advice or suggestions to move forward in gathering anything that is available (from whoever) for consumption, population, trends, etc. for Asian specifics by city/state, etc.? Any advice/direction is greatly appreciated."

Other:

"We are looking for Hispanic agencies to support CMS (content management system) in planning, developing, producing, delivering and executing a multi-media outreach campaign to reach Spanish-speaking persons with Medicare and their health care influencers."
