"I wanted to take the time to thank the 100 Black Men of North Metro Atlanta for honoring me with their 2021 Image Award. Being honored as someone who provides a positive image for our young Black [men] means more to me than I could write. Everyday I try my best to be a reflection of the change I wish to see in Atlanta, Georgia, and the American South. It is humbling to know that people I care about are paying attention," said Nathaniel Smith.
