The 3-part weekly series features Raymond Graham of Prairie View A&M University, Joshua Hughes of Howard University and Zoe Mitchell of Florida A&M University. The series runs across TV One and iOne Digital. Although only three will be highlighted during the series, more students are allowed to take advantage of the program as well.
AT&T Director of Marketing & Special Experiences, Angela Burgin speaks on the importance of the program.
“Through this program we get to celebrate 25 outstanding individuals, along with sharing their stories as they endeavor to make a difference in their communities.”
Romeo can attest to this as well. His father is well-renowned music legend and entrepreneur, Master P. The No Limit CEO was adamant about Romeo’s younger brother, Hercy, going to any HBCU for college.
“If you know anything about my family, The Miller Gang, from my pops Master P to my brother Hercy Miller deciding to go to Tennessee State,” said Romeo.
“We’re all about putting that spotlight on HBCUs and their students. It’s only the beginning.”
On the other hand, Reginae Carter helped a FAMU student, Zoe Mitchell, appreciate her melanated skin. While Mitchell grew up in a predominately white neighborhood, she was intentional in attending an HBCU. She became a sister of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority during her freshman year and a FAMU cheerleader. After her cheerleading photo went viral, she realized that every complexion is beautiful.
The program is open for HBCU students to apply. 25 winners will win $5,000 to pursue their dream.
