Posted by | Ray Cornelius

My friends over at ASPiRE are showing some love to two of Atlanta’s biggest stars, Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and Kandi Burruss during this new season of Changemakers.

The 30-minute reality series features African-American celebrities who are using their success to give back to others.  The shows will spotlight Patton’s Big Kidz Foundation and Burruss’ Kandi C.A.R.E.S Foundation respectively. The new episodes will premiere this Wednesday, November 11 at 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. EST.

“‘Changemakers’ is one of the only series of its kind that focuses on celebrities who are changing the game in their communities by doing extraordinary things,” said Tina Thompson, director, programming, ASPiRE. “This series is a perfect example of the type of positive programming that makes ASPiRE the distinct and unique network that it is. We are committed to shining a spotlight on the next generation of gamechangers.”
