Culture notes: Atlanta Music Project leader in Ebony’s Power 100; Dashboard Co-Op picks 12 artists for 2014

MUSIC
Ebony magazine names Atlantan to Power 100

Joining President Obama and Oprah Winfrey among other notables, Atlanta Music Project co-founder and executive director Dantes Rameau has been selected for Ebony’s Power 100.

Leading a nonprofit that provides intensive music training to underserved youth, Rameau and the other “game-changers” are featured in the magazine’s December/January issue. He  is included in the Community Crusaders category.

Rameau said the call from Johnson Publishing CEO (and former White House social secretary) Desiree Rogers took him by surprise and he didn’t fully believe it until an invitation to a New York gala feting the honorees arrived in the mail.

“It’s fantastic that a major national publication recognizes the impact that an organization such as the Atlanta Music Project is having on our youth and communities,” Rameau said.
