According to Black USA News, Tyrone Taborn, founding CEO of Career Communications Group and chief content officer of STEM City USA, has taken 21st-century technology, his in-depth knowledge of American history and culture, and produced his own virtual world.
“I am truly excited for all the people who will benefit from this modern community that we are building,” Taborn told Black USA News recently. “Specifically, it involves providing education and economic opportunity to at-risk or marginalized students. It has also created a way for us to create a digital closeness; not just distancing, but closeness. It has provided us an opportunity to see what was impossible – it is now possible. We’re at a place where we’re so in front of this, we want you to be on our journey.”
