About the TOYA
In 1993, Regina L. Burns was honored with the prestigious Ten Outstanding Young Americans award, given by the U.S. Junior Chamber (Jaycees).
Harvest Reapers Communications is a Dallas, Texas-based boutique agency specializing in public relations services.
Regina L. Burns founded Harvest Reapers Communications in Memphis, Tenn., in 1996. Prior to starting the agency, she successfully marketed the Imperial Tombs of China exhibition to the African-American community, while working for Sossaman & Associates Advertising Agency.
At the urging of Ken Sossaman, Burns joined a media trip to Hong Kong, Beijing and Xi'an, China, in advance of the exhibition, to ensure she was well-versed in the artifacts’ history and the Chinese culture. After returning to Memphis, Burns researched and wrote a 30-minute presentation "From Food Stamps, Welfare and Free Cheese to The Great Wall of China" and presented it to groups and organizations.
Her strategic and inspirational story helped generate a 50 percent increase in group-ticket sales for Imperial Tombs of China. Furthermore, at least 40 percent more African American volunteers and docents signed up to participate.
