MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - One day before the start of Black History Month, attendees at the Salvation Army Kroc Center were treated to a stage production of iconic African Americans.

The Memphis Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Memphis, Porter-Leath, The Neighborhood School and other community organizations to host their Annual Black History Month Program.

Also in attendance was Memphis teen CEO, Moziah Bridges. Bridges, who founded Mo's Bows at the age of nine, gave a motivational speech about leadership.

In addition to the program, Jack and Jill partnered with Bridges and commissioned the American, Black and Classic Bow Tie. Proceeds from the sale of the tie will benefit the Go Mo Scholarship Fund, which sends area children to summer camp.

In 2014, Moziah raised $1,600 to send ten kids to Glenview Summer Camp. Click here to view his 2015 Go Mo bow tie.
