Halloween may be on Friday, but if you’re a college student in Atlanta, and you’re planning life after college, the Men of Brawley Hall Panel Tour at Clark Atlanta University is for you.
In an uncertain economic climate, many college students have questions about how to translate their college studies and experiences into real world success.
Eight young black male students who met as freshmen dorm mates at Clark Atlanta University’s Brawley Hall all achieved tremendous success in a broad range of fields, remained close friends and want to give back by returning to the campus to motivate and inspire the next generation of future leaders.
Sponsored by Agency For Artists, an international talent booking agency that connects folks with the hottest talent in the industry, the panel participants includes: educator Kyle Ames, investment banker Chris Griffin, filmmaker Noel Calloway, entertainers and entrepreneurs Don Cannon, DJ Drama, DJ Sense, comedian Damien Lemon and medical expert Elee Stewart.
The creation of the panel tour stemmed from a discussion about black men and all of the negative statistics and media they receive as a whole and as a result, the Brawley Hall Panel represents the stories and lives of the men who we may see in our communities daily, but whose work ethic, drive and success are not always celebrated.
The Brawley Hall panel plans to deliver insight by authentically sharing the experiences, challenges and rewards of their respective journeys. Features of the panel tour will include one-on-one interactions with students, as well as mentoring and scholarships. With so much history and chemistry between the men, the panel also makes for an entertaining experience.
