We are pleased to announce that Wayne Sutton has joined the 2014 AT&T 28 Days campaign. After five successful years as a speaking series, this year’s campaign embraces a new model of “making history happen” by engaging consumers and fans via social media.

AT&T is celebrating Black History Month by helping three teams of passionate people leave their own footprint on history. Here is an opportunity to be inspired by others and to support healthy living, the arts, or technology with proven mentors like Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross, hip-hop icon MC Lyte, and digital strategist Wayne Sutton. As part of the team challenges, each team will collaborate with three non-profit organizations selected as Friends of AT&T 28 Days.

Throughout the month of February, Wayne Sutton will mentor a team to “make history happen” for the Oakland Digital Arts and Literacy Center by inspiring civic pride through design and real-world experience. All teams will compete by assisting their respective organizations and sharing their progress online. Weekly team challenges are designed to help these organizations continue to make a difference in the community. Learn more about the Friends of AT&T 28 Days and discover how each team will help "make history happen."
