Former soldier and Bronze Star Veteran Maceo Keeling boarded the Millennial Train as a means to collaborate with his peers and learn their collective needs.

Keeling founded Citizens of Culture, a media platform that seeks to inspire young people to take an active role in shaping the future and changing the world. The site encourages contributions from poetry to social commentary, and there is a non-fiction book club offshoot that culminates in real-time Twitter chats in which users can critically analyze and discuss the reads.

Maceo believes we all have an obligation to better ourselves and society through art and entrepreneurship. His overall goal is to determine, by any means necessary, how to engage millennials in a nationwide dialogue with one another.
