Norma Joy Barnes, founder and president of the Community Council of Metropolitan Atlanta, talks about the non-profit’s Priority Male Institute and its Class of 2014.
Moderated by Rick Badie
Today, we highlight a local program that mirrors the purpose of President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative. It’s the Priority Male Institute, a 12-week program for young black men ages 18 to 28, sponsored by the nonprofit Community Council of Metropolitan Atlanta. A volunteer writes about experiences of the Class of 2014, which recently took part in a “rite of passage” ceremony and graduation, while I talk to the founder of the nonprofit.
