Hundreds of Young Men Attend Empowerment Summit


By Alabama News Network

One local organization is stepping up to mentor young men all across the River Region.

More than 2,000 young men are meeting nearly 200 influential black men from the area.

That includes our very own Sports Director Dee Jackson at the Black Male Empowerment Summit.

The event is hosted by Project H.O.P.E. which stands for Helping Our People Evolve.

Local lawyers, doctors, business owners, politicians, rappers and professional athletes were there to reach out to the area's young men.

Organizers say the summit is only the start of Project H.O.P.E. and mentoring and other programs will continue and develop throughout the year.
