Michael And Martellus Bennett ‘Shine A Light’ On The Field And In The Community

Michael and Martellus Bennett are two well-rounded brothers if I do say so myself. Not only are they beast on the field both being Super Bowl champions they are actively involved in changing the mindsets of their own communities. This past weekend the Bennett brothers were awarded the ‘Shine A Light’ Award by BET for their showmanship in the community.

 

"These brothers use their platform as Super Bowl-champion athletes to impact minority communities," presenter Cari Champion said.

 

Both Michael and Martellus are making equally deserving strides in uplifting minorities and ultimately empowering a new wave of young intellectuals who believe in themselves and can achieve more then what they are stereotyped as.

 

 

 

"Michael's 'The Bennett Foundation' educates and feeds underserved children and communities through accessible math and science programs along with free lunch programs. Michael will donate all of his 2017 endorsements to charities that focus on helping minority communities."

 

"Martellus is dedicated to changing the perception of athletes with his company, 'Imagination Agency.' Imploring our community to look beyond sports. We can do more than throw that football. Using art as another road to success, which leads to freedom in so many more ways."

 

Being able to personally speak with the Bennett brothers I know first hand that this is only the beginning of their community efforts. They are always looking to build and expand their networks while giving African American children the tools they need to be successful not only in sports and entertainment but to successfully navigate their minds to excel way beyond their dreams.
