NJ Firm Pushes African American History to Homes, Schools
Gayle Brill Mittler and Robert Kersey had one common vision when they first formed GEEBEE Marketing. They wanted to create a complete line of games, toys, and puzzles that would bring the vast rich and diverse history of America's nearly 15,000,000 citizens of African American descent into homes and classrooms. That was 1997.

Now in 2008, the company's Black Heritage Series includes three games and two puzzle assortments. The line is distributed by retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores, K-mart, Walgreen's, as well as gift and book stores across the country, online retailers and others. For its success GEEBEE Marketing has been recognized as a leading marketer of ethnic products.
