How P&G Battled Racism Through a Trilogy of Powerful Ads
In the season 1 finale of our Tagline podcast, we look at Procter & Gamble's powerful trilogy of spots about racial bias: "The Talk" from 2017, "The Look" from 2019, and "The Choice" from 2020. We dig into the craft of each piece and explore P&G's evolving approach to fighting racism, from the early days of the Trump presidency to the murder of George Floyd and beyond.
