American Black Journal took to the road to produce a special one-hour edition focused on mentorship and education.
Hosted by Stephen Henderson, the show recorded at the Downtown Boxing Gym in January 2017 and featured several community leaders including Boxing Gym Founder and Program Director, Khali Sweeney.
Sweeney founded the Downtown Boxing Gym in 2007 with the goal of opening a safe haven for kids who grow up in Detroit’s East Side. His own history as a Detroit native shapes the curriculum he has
developed for the Youth Program that emphasizes books before boxing and community service. He was honored with an American Graduate Champion award in 2015.
