A new TV advertising campaign in Montgomery, Alabama, is trying to change the way we think about the past.
The campaign, called Montgomery Advertiser, is being launched with the support of several local businesses.
The aim is to make the past seem more relevant to the present.
The ads are part of the Adweek Awards campaign, which is being supported by the American Council on Education and the American Association of University Women.
They will run on the Montgomery County Fairgrounds from October 22 to 23.
The adverts will feature a young woman holding a photo of her late father, who worked at Montgomery Electric.
She tells the viewer her dad, who was a janitor in the Montgomery Public Works Department, was an “amazing man”.
She tells the story of her grandfather who had his own TV news station in the 1940s.
She says that his son has his own station too.
In one scene, the woman’s grandfather tells the young woman: “If you don’t think you can be a great mother, think again.
If you don`t want to be a good mother, be a mother.”
Montgomery Advertisers slogan is ‘Montgomery, We’re proud of you’.
