Life

Wendy Williams in D.C. to Support Historically Black Colleges

What good is a college acceptance if you may never graduate because you can’t afford to finish? Worse, what happens to those stuck with student loan debt they incurred along the way, but have no degree to show for it?

One in three college freshmen will drop out due to a lack of resources according to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF). This D.C. organization helps remove the financial obstacles for students at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to obtain their degrees.

Some question the future or need for HBCUs though.

This week we’ll chat with Johnny C. Taylor, President, and CEO of TMCF, about college completion, the challenges and promise of HBCUs, and his organization’s week of events highlighting opportunity for young people including a gala hosted by radio and TV personality Wendy Williams. This summer, Williams came under fire for questioning the need for HBCUs.
