unnamed (1)This weekend, Downtown Atlanta was jam packed with fans that traveled from all over the country to witness South Carolina State University and North Carolina A&T battle for victory inside of the Georgia Dome. There was so much going on this past weekend from college fairs, seminars, and a slew of actities that included appearances by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rapper Ludacris, 2Chainz, and baseball icon Hank Aaron.

I want to thank the 100 Black Men of Atlanta for first of all being such a gracious host, providing myself and staff sideline tickets, and executing an overall wonderful event.
