The symposium featured classes and workshops for children and parents which focused on determining your success, domestic violence, non-violence, economic empowerment, (Brand Bank/Credit Union of Atlanta),  health & wellness, self-esteem, personal hygiene, obstacle courses, and much more. Celebrity and athletic mentors included: Rhavynn Drummer (freelance casting director for Tyler Perry Studios), Gregory Toler (Indiana Colts Cornerback), Jock McKissic, Alpha Tyler (casting director, Being Mary Jane), Claudia Jordan, and more.

Stevie says that the AAE Symposium was cultivated from a football camp and life skills clinic. This year was the first year that they incorporated the arts and entertainment portion to the symposium in order to reach out to...
