[RECAP] AT&T 28 Days ft. @Common and @Marioarmstrong

On February 15th, 2012 I had the honor of attending the AT&T 28 Days Speaker Series and it was absolutely amazing. The series was hosted by Common and the guest speaker was Baltimore's own Mario Armstrong. The event was centered around achieving some of your entrepreneurial dreams while integrating today's technology.

Mario Armstrong captivated the crowd as he went thru 5 steps that he personally incorporated into his life to help him quit is 9-5 and chase after his entrepreneurial dreams. Mario and the people at AT&T gave a participant a brand new Hewitt Packard laptop so she could begin here journey into starting her non profit organization centered around helping at risk youth in the Anacostia area.

Not only did Mario Armstrong provide the audience with some great jewels, Common ended the event by performing some of the songs off his new album "The Dreamer, The Believer".

Above are a few pictures from that night. Below is a brief summary of the event from AT&T and it also provides a website so you can hopefully catch this event in a city near you.


For the third year, AT&T will hold its 28 Days speaker series event in Washington, D.C. At the 28 Days speaker series event, technology commentator and digital lifestyle expert Mario Armstrong will motivate and inspire Washington, D.C. residents to make their mark on history this Black History Month and throughout the new year.

The 2012 AT&T 28 Days campaign is hosted by award-winning hip-hop artist, actor, author, activist, Common and features a seven-city speaker series tour with some of today's key influential and respected African American leaders.

AT&T created 28 Days in 2009 to highlight the month of February as more than a reflection of the past, but as an unimaginable footprint to what the future holds beyond Black History Month. This year, the AT&T 28 Days campaign returns with a new rhythm and feel that will inspire consumers to achieve their dreams.

Tickets for the Washington, D.C. speaker series event featuring Mario Armstrong are available for free on a first come first serve basis, at facebook.com/att28days. For further information regarding 28 Days please visit att.com/28days.com.
