HBCU graduate and actress Keisha Knight Pulliam is returning near her old stomping grounds to teach classes for students as part of Now and Later’s “Recognize The C.H.E.W.” series.
Joining entertainer Terrence J, a fellow HBCU grad, both stars are geared up to pass along their knowledge and wisdom to the next generation of Black undergraduates, according to the Chicago Defender.
Knight Pulliam, a graduate of Spelman College, is headed to Clark Atlanta University to teach a course on entrepreneurship with CAU’s Mass Media Arts department.
“This next generation of HBCU leaders are resilient, and I am honored to provide any helpful nuggets to help fuel their entrepreneurial passions,” Pulliam said in an official press release.
Terrence J, a grad of North Carolina A&T, who has several years of experience as a host for E! And BET’s 106th and Park, will head to the Cathy Hughes School of Communications at Howard University in Washington, D.C. to teach a course on media and journalism. Earlier this year, Terrence partnered with the Black-owned banking platform, First Boulevard, for an HBCU financial literacy initiative that provides students the resources and knowledge to build a solid foundation for financial success.
“HBCUs are major pillars in the Black community that reflect the very essence of Black excellence, and when married with a nostalgic brand like Now and Later the possibilities can’t get any better!”
The pair, in partnership with Now and Later, will also donate $10,000 each that will help jumpstart a scholarship fund to introduce students to former HBCU grads who have established successful business ventures.
