PR’s Hidden History Family Tree includes pioneers such as Joseph Baker, founder of the first Black-owned PR firm; Inez Kaiser, the first Black woman to open her own PR firm; and Asian-American PR pro Lynne Choy Uyeda. The latest in PRWeek’s series of Family Trees showcases the achievements of these pioneering individuals and the legacies they have left for the next generations of comms professionals.
