AT&Tcelebrates acclaimed actress, writer and activist Ruby Dee along with past and current black trailblazers with this year’s AT&T 28 Days throughout the month of February. The program spotlights pivotal figures and moments during Black History Month.

AT&T 28 Days will honor those whose achievements uplift the community – from popular artists and ambassadors, to college presidents and business leaders.
