About the Founder

A nationally respected cultural arts advocate and communications executive, Silver established AKILA to honorably service the needs of progressive communities. Because of her work, she's been featured in The Washington Post, Ms., ESSENCE, EBONY, and on CNN. Her first book, Be a Father to Your Child: Real Talk from Black Men on Family, Love, and Fatherhood, was published to critical acclaim. Her second will focus on Black women (slated for 2022).

"April R. Silver and her ... team are first-in-class. They bring the skill, sharp insight, and integrity to the projects they take on and are masters in the use of new and traditional media. Silver is a spirited and visionary leader. She's an uncommon professional and a joy to work with. AKILA WORKSONGS is the wise choice for any effective reach into the hearts and minds of Urban America--they over-deliver. Surely, they are my choice!"

- Susan L. Taylor, Founder, National CARES Mentoring Movement; Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, ESSENCE Magazine

Nov. 5, 2021 Spotlight: The April Silver Takeover of iMiXWHATiLiKe with Jared Ball

If I must say so myself, the producer, host, and namesake of  "iMiXWHATiLiKE!" with Jared Ball" had the rather brilliant idea to turn over his show to me, LOL!

For two hours on Friday, November 5, 2021 from 8am to 10am ET. I get to spotlight my agency *and* I get to spotlight the clients and friends I admire. Tune in. We'll be live on YouTube for the full two hours!

We'll be sure to address the powerful student protest at Howard University aka #BlackburnTakeover.

FYI, "iMWiL" is an acronym for "I Mix What I Like!" (stylized as "iMiXWHATiLiKE" or  "iMWiL") and it's a take on Steve Biko's collection of writings, entitled I Write What I Like: Selected Writings by Steve Biko. #ProudPublicist #ArtsAndActivism #AKILAWORKSONGS
