Omari Hardwick brought his star “power” to the My Brother’s Keeper Town Hall at the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Convention on Friday. The actor opened the town hall by reading a poem he wrote to inspire and ignite a fire in young boys of color.


“For [the president] to have My Brother’s Keeper as a pivotal priority is so important,” said Johnson, who is an assistant to the president. “The president is committed to this for the rest of his presidency. He has said repeatedly that this is his life’s work.”

Mentorship is the thread that seemed to tie the conversation together. Mentorship was the driving force to attract the Power star into the brotherhood with a mission to “enlighten and guide” students with the “wisdom and desire to succeed.”


Dakar Foundation was invited by Michael Smith, MBK and special assistant to the President. The MBK Townhall was a featured event partnered with TV One, and hosted by Congressional Black Caucus, Friday, September 16, 2016. Dakar's senior advisor, Retired Brigadier General, U.S. Army represented, Dakar and Homageusa.
