The Rosa Foundation honored four “Men Making Positive Changes,” in recognition of their personal and professional contributions to improving the quality of life in Black and Brown communities.

In the foundation’s fourth annual event, honorees included Greensboro Councilmember Hugh Holston, community leadership; Germaine Cousar, education and athletics; James Benton, youth advocacy; and Dr. Henry Smith, lifesaving achievements.

“Our aim is to redefine perceptions of men, particularly within the Black and Brown community,” said James Rosa Jr., co-founder of the Rosa Foundation. “We are determined to showcase the presence of admirable men, devoted fathers and exemplary leaders in our midst.”
