BlackGivesBack's black men and boys movement is growing! A big thank you goes to sports reporter Eric Woodyard at MLive.com for featuring an article on our Black Men & Boys series and our first Insider, David McGhee. One of the goals of this series is to dispel the negative stereotypes often associated with black men and boys, and media can play a critical role in advancing how they are perceived.
In the article, "Flint native David McGhee trades in sports for mentoring to change the lives of young people," Woodyard shares McGhee's journey from playing college basketball to the community leader he is today.
Reta Stanley, the President and CEO at his organization Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Flint shared in the article, "It's really cool to connect with other organizations that are doing like work. Those collaborations are really the buzz words that are out there, so Black Gives Back is huge for us."
