Jocelyn Dorsey is one of Atlanta’s treasures. She was Atlanta’s first African-American anchor at WSB-TV (Channel 2), where she won countless awards during her 45 years of service. There was virtually no role she did not play – anchor, reporter, producer, assignment editor, director of editorials & public affairs, and executive producer of “People 2 People.” In her management role, she supervised the selection, creation and marketing for all special events and community outreach programs for the Family 2 Family Project, WSB-TV community service projects and WSB-TV & Radio Tours. 

She is an inductee into the Georgia Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the Atlanta Press Club Hall of Fame. A seven-time Emmy award winner, she was the first woman and African-American to receive the Georgia Association of Broadcaster’s Citizen of the Year Award. Dorsey sits on multiple boards of directors, and has a passion for charities. She once rode her Harley Davidson 7,688 miles from Fairbanks to Key West in 21 days to helped raise $250,000 for Special Olympics.


Benjamin Earley is recognized as one of Atlanta’s rising young voices for change. He co-hosts the Westside Future Fund’s Transition Westside Summit each month that focuses on economic justice and opportunity for legacy residents in an area of the city where Martin Luther King, Jr. once called his home. His contributions as a social media manager, videographer and newsletter editor have played a significant role in that organization’s growth. A marketing consultant with Redclay-Hill, he recently launched an online clothing store ( where he serves as chief illustrator and designer. He is a graduate of Frederick Douglass High School on the city’s Westside and holds two specialist certificates for general music studies from Berklee College of Music.
