Join actors in live and online challenges as part of the Potential of Us program.
Since the first Black History celebration more than 85 years ago, the observance of Black History has expanded from one week to a month and is a time where individuals celebrate the legacy and contributions of African Americans to society.
In recognition of the month-long celebration, Verizon Wireless is encouraging the public to build upon that legacy that others have paved as part of its Potential of Us program. Join actors Morris Chestnut, Lance Gross, Regina Hall and Keke Palmer to inspire the public to give back to the community and tap into their own potential to build stronger communities.
“I’m excited to be a part of Potential of Us because it’s something positive,” said Palmer. “The biggest thing I want to accomplish is to inspire people.”
Starting Feb. 1 and running through the month, the community can join Palmer, Chestnut, Gross and Hall to participate in a series of live and social challenges that range from teaching an elder to use technology to reading to a child to performing a random act of kindness. Verizon will be surprising Detroit with its own Random Acts of Kindness as well on Wednesday, February 12.
