Popular syndicated radio show host, Michael Baisden, host of the Michael Baisden Show, currently airing in 22 markets, celebrated his 9th Anniversary this past weekend at the Apollo before a sold-out crowd and helped Baisden raise more money this month for a cause close to his heart. He presented $20,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters to support its Mentoring Brothers Brothers In Action program.
With the anniversary celebration donation, The Michael Baisden Foundation has provided more than $130,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters and its affiliates. Baisden has partnered with the organization’s Mentoring Brothers in Action African American mentoring program to engage more Black men to get involved in one-to-one mentoring to change the odds for African American boys. In addition, Baisden supports the effort with hundreds of thousands of dollars in air time, special appearances, and through his social media platforms, which have nearly 550,000 followers.
Mentoring Brothers in Action is a national partnership between Big Brothers Big Sisters and the nation’s three largest African American fraternities — Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi and Omega Psi Phi. It also includes Stand Up Men, which rallies individuals to work together to address racial disparities, promote education and advocate for health and community development.
