LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The annual REVOLT Summit x AT&T is back and going entirely virtual and free of cost for a 3-day summit from October 23-25. Leading up to the flagship event, starting September 15, REVOLT and AT&T will premiere a digital content series ROAD TO SUMMIT - THE WORLD IS YOURS, co-produced by Teyana Taylor & the Aunties.
In response to the pandemic, the virtual event and content series will continue the REVOLT Summit x AT&T tradition of creating viral, cultural moments with the young, Black, and vocal audience at the center of history-making events, instilling the idea that "the world is yours."
The ROAD TO SUMMIT - THE WORLD IS YOURS is an original series that highlights emerging artists, entrepreneurs and creators sharing the trials and triumphs of chasing success. Offerings will include five (5) digital episodes on important narratives surrounding Hip Hop and the current cultural climate.

This is a pivotal moment in history and we are bringing together the best minds in entertainment, political activism and business to share their experiences, educate and motivate our community."
"As we face a critical moment in our history, it's more important than ever that we create an experience anchored in empowering the next generation of cultural leaders and elevating the Black community globally," said Detavio Samuels, REVOLT Media & TV COO.
