I chose to back this project because… I believe in the HBCU experience. Unfortunately I didn’t start at an HBCU and I know the experience is different for freshmen. I think this project is a great chance to show the beginning of the HBCU experience. I love that Kaiya is coming across the country to attend North Carolina A&T.
I hope this project … Will reflect the true freshman HBCU experience – the good and the bad. All of which is worth it in my opinion. I also hope it will dispel some myths. Every HBCU isn’t like Hillman, Atlanta A&T (Drumline) or the portrayal we see in Stomp the Yard. It’s some of all those portrayals and then some. I just wish you were chronicling more than just the first 48 – I wish we could see the first year! Perhaps we can do a wrap up at the end of Kaiya’s first year.
HBCU Affiliation: North Carolina A&T Alum – class of 1994.
Project(s) I am currently working on... Nothing, unless you count entering the second year of my first marriage. As a late bloomer this has been an interesting and fulfilling ‘project’
