Maynard Cooper is proud to announce that Mobile shareholder Kenyen Brown was recently unveiled as an honoree in the 2018 Alabama African American History Calendar. This is the eighth year AT&T has highlighted the achievements of 12 remarkable Alabamians. The calendar annually celebrates the lives, leadership, and achievements of African Americans who have made and are making a difference in the world today. It also serves to inspire Alabama youth by highlighting the remarkable accomplishments of past and present Alabama trailblazers from various walks of life. Throughout the years, the calendar has recognized an astronaut, civil rights activists, entrepreneurs, physicians, athletes, educators, rocket scientists, politicians, and many, many more.
The Alabama State Department of Education has incorporated the Alabama African American History Calendar into its comprehensive curriculum plan as a resource tool for use in schools across the state. Lessons on each calendar honoree are designed and placed on the Alabama Learning Exchange (ALEX) in order for students of all ages to learn more about each honoree. Prior to his time with Maynard Cooper, Kenyen served as Southern Alabama’s U.S. Attorney for seven years and also spent time in Washington, D.C. on both the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee and the U.S. House Ethics Committee.
