This homecoming season, MACRO is excited to host its first ever event on an HBCU campus. The MACRO x HU Summit will be held on the campus of Howard University on Tuesday Oct 8th. Events will be held on campus in Cramton Auditorium Theater from 11am-10pm.
Founded by Howard alum Charles D. King, MACRO is a multiplatform media company created to represent the perspective and voice of people of color (POC). The mission is to empower people of color to change the dynamic of how we are perceived and portrayed. There’s no better way to accomplish that than creating opportunities for more POC to have a seat at the table when decisions are being made.
MACRO is well known for MACRO Lodge at Sundance. The world-renowned Sundance Film Festival is the largest independent film festival in the United States. They host curated experiences, social events, and plenty of opportunities to network for actors, directors, and even more POC creatives in entertainment.
