MARCUS SMITH CAPTURES KENNY DOSS FOR NIKE
Marcus had the honor of meeting and shooting Kenny Doss for Nike's Black History Month campaign. Kenny grew up in one of Chicago's roughest South Side neighborhoods, Englewood. He escaped the violence and crime by attending college to play basketball. After graduating, he returned to Englewood to join his father and uncle on their mission to help get young people of the streets. Kenny founded Bridging the Gap Globally program which unites neighborhood kids on the basketball courts and he hopes to soon open a community center. Says Kenny, "My ultimate goal is to have a facility that kids know when they walk through our doors there's hope, and they can overcome any obstacle in life." Thank you, Kenny!
