David Banner Talks Thurgood Marshall Homecoming Weekend With Shawn Knight
If you went to college especially a HBCU the month of October means one thing and that's HOMECOMING!
However, due to COVID-19 the Homecoming vibe has been little to none as most colleges and universities are virtual, but hip hop artist, and activist David Banner is bringing something special as he partners with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to bring a virtual Home Coming experience like none other.
The Thurgood Marshall College Fund #RISE HC2K20 is a virtual concert taking place Sunday (October 25th) to create a memorable and fun at-home experience that will support organizational funding needs.
Spearheading this event is through David Banner's production company A Banner Vision and Banner explained how proud he was that his company was chosen to represent this event is because he graduated from a HBCU at Southern University in Baton Rouge Louisiana.
This fun night is filled with a list of who's who in entertainment with hosts Terrance J who is a Thurgood Marshall College Fund National Ambassador, and Actress, Dancer, and Choreographer Brandee Evans and a list of performers like Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, 2 Chainz, BIG K.R.I.T., India Arie, Kandi Burruss and much more.
One thing that I really love about this event is that the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund tells the story how they build upon the legacy of HBCU by producing leaders of impact using four thematic focus areas.
- Social and Racial Justice
- Economic Empowerment in our community
- Health Disparities
- Civic Engagement
