HRC Foundation and Promised Land Film are pleased to announce that they have awarded $4,000 grants to four historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The grant will allow institutions to use the award-winning documentary, The New Black, as a tool to advance on-campus LGBT inclusion.
“Engaging in meaningful dialogue at HBCUs is an important tool in helping develop a cadre of empowered student leaders with an intersectional understanding of justice,” said HRC Foundation’s Youth and Campus Engagement Manager Samantha Master.
The effort is made possible through a partnership between HRC Foundation’s HBCU Project and Promised Land Film. The grants will be awarded to Alabama State University, Johnson C. Smith University, Spelman College, and Tennessee State University.
