The African American Male Wellness Agency announced business mogul C. David Moody, Jr. as the 2021 Honorary Chair for the city of Atlanta.

Moody and his wife Karla have two children and reside in Lithonia, Georgia, just outside Atlanta.

“We are so excited to have David Moody as this year’s Honorary Chair,” said Keith Dobbins, Atlanta coordinator. “Given Mr. Moody’s massive contributions as a business mogul to the Black community-at-large to Atlanta, and to the world, it was only fitting to ask him to be the Honorary Chair. He is a trailblazer, an accomplished business professional, and an influencer around the world. He can tell the story of how overcoming the odds to achieve greatness, is truly attainable.”

Moody, who is the owner of C.D. Moody Construction Company, Inc., the largest African American-owned construction company in America has been building within the community for more than 30 years.

With a visible presence that has literally changed the lives of people through his work, Moody has continually invested, both monetarily and personally into people of all ages.

Moody also is a graduate of both Morehouse College and Howard University.

His company has appeared every year on Black Enterprise magazine’s “Top 100” list of the nation’s largest Black-owned industrial/services companies.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle has ranked his firm as one of Atlanta’s top 25 commercial contractors and top 100 private companies.

In addition to construction, Moody founded the C.D. Moody Foundation which provides financial assistance for students with a passion for construction and entrepreneurship.

To date, more than 80 individual scholarships have been awarded. He has also funded endowed scholarships at Morehouse College, Howard University, Georgia Perimeter College, and Central State University.

Moody also devotes time with K-12 students, where he personally instills in students the endless possibilities that are directly associated with hard work, perseverance, and a positive attitude.

He is also the co-author of the acclaimed book, “Fighting through the Fear – My Journey of Healing from Childhood Sexual Abuse,” co-authored with his good friend and former Morehouse College roommate, Charles W. Cherry II.
