ATLANTA, Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Majic 107.5’s Ryan Cameron, along with The Gathering Spot founder, Ryan Wilson, are among the 45 men inducted into the new class of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta.
“The 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. is extremely excited about bringing this new class of members into our organization,” said the organization’s chairman of the board, Kevin Gooch. Gooch continues, “The resumes and professional experiences speak for themselves, but the desire to serve exhibited by each of these men will ensure that the positive impact of our organization will be felt for decades to come.”
Cameron, who is also the voice of the Atlanta Hawks, is looking forward to helping high school and middle school students all over the metro area. “I think it is a beautiful time in America for the youth of color,” said Cameron, “and I must do everything that I can within my realm of relationships and possibilities to make sure they have a bright future.”
“I am deeply honored to join this class,” said Wilson who is a native of Atlanta. He adds, “the 100 Black Men is one of the organizations and communities that I’ve long admired, and as I think of the men that were active and engaged in the community as I’ve grown up a lot of those men were members of the 100.”
“I believe that God exists on our own island,” said Cameron, “and we need to start operating more like trees with the 100 being the root, as opposed to with pyramids people of power sitting up on top and everybody else is under them so that’s what I’m trying to do is help become a root for the tree and today’s youth.”
Chairman Gooch is looking forward to the impact these new members will make not only for the organization but on the young people in the capital city. “Our future is bright because of this class and our communities will definitely benefit from their time, talent, and resources.”
