Last night, Common and Daymond John, the Founder of FUBU – For Us By Us, spoke at the world famous Apollo Theater in Harlem for AT&T’s “History Makers 28 Days” event.
As the host, Common highlighted several key individuals we celebrate during Black History Month. He inspired the crowd to “rethink possible” and take note of the outstanding African Americans who’ve opened doors for Black people today.
Guest speaker, Daymond John, shared intimate moments of using guerilla style marketing to creating a multimillion dollar clothing line, and establishing his brand marketing company, Shark Branding. John emphasized how following the mantra to “Rethink Possible” motivated him to persevere in times of hardship when creating these respective multi-million dollar companies.
The audience was filled with aspiring entrepreneurs looking to put their mark on Black history…OUR history.
Pop the hood to check out what Common had to say about his engagement to Serena Williams and more…..
Did you see the smile on his face. If you ask me, I hear wedding bells in the near future for the two lovebirds! *wink wink*
