Our first Engagement Calendar
In 1995 our publisher Pomegranate, being satisfied with out wall calendars, wanted to expand. So they asked us to produce a weekly engagement calendar. The task was daunting, but the results were worth the hard work it took to put this calendar together. It quickly became our best seller, surpassing the vanguard wall calendar.
We produced the "365 Days of Black History" engagement calendar until 2012, when the digital world started to take hold. Absolutely the engagement calendar succumbed to this digital revolution of IPads, tablets, notebooks, etc and various means of keeping appointments. We continued producing it, as we tried to convince our publishers that people bought this calendar, not to keep appointments, but for the information. But 2012 marked the last year for this unique, educational, beautiful desk calendar.
Since 2012, we get a call almost every day asking if we still produce the engagement calendar. It was very popular!
