22. Malcolm Brogdon
A proud son of Atlanta, Georgia, Brogdon is back in his home city so he can join the ongoing movement. He believes that it’s important for elite athletes to use their privilege for good. Brogdon is a leader and took to the streets to motivate fellow citizens.
His grandfather also matched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960s. Brogdon told the crowd:
“This isn’t something where we come and … we don’t have to burn down our homes. We built this city. This is the most proudly black city in the world. In the world, man. Let’s take some pride in that. Let’s focus our energy.”
