"While having the opportunity to build and lead a historic team as part of Biden for President is a true honor, having a focused team for Black paid media and creative underscores the importance of the black vote in this election," said Terrance Green, founder of Washington, D.C.-based Truxton Creative and alumnus of the paid media teams for both Obama-Biden wins in 2008 and 2010. 

Truxton Creative, along with Black-owned media buying agency Converging Media, led both the creation and ad-buying strategy of all African American-focused advertising for the Biden-Harris campaign.

Amongst the notable advertisements released by the company that specifically spoke to the Black community included the Shop Talk series of testimonial-style ads featuring seven Black North Carolina men. The first two ads of the series, "Shop Talk Our Right" and "Shop Talk Trust" showcase Black men discussing their support for Vice President Biden and Senator Harris and trusting in their leadership to guide Americans to a better tomorrow.
