Arguably there is nothing more beautiful than giving back to your community. There is something extra special when African Americans give back to their hometown. The renowned former NBA player turned sports commentator, Magic Johnson, plans on doing just that.
WCHB News reports quite simply, “Magic Johnson stated he will be creating jobs in Detroit teasing a ‘big announcement’ he plans to make in Detroit, Michigan his home state. He followed up with a second tweet. Johnson said, ‘Look forward to help putting people back to work in my home state.’” It might be extra short, concise, and to the point, but that does not negate the potency and power of opening job opportunities in an economy such as this.
