As voters show up to the polls in record numbers to cast their votes early ahead of Election Day, HBCU Heroes is on a mission to ensure those numbers include the voices of HBCU students from across the country with the launch of the “HBCU Good Trouble Takeover…Walk. Run. Stroll to the Polls” campaign sponsored by Verizon and CitiBank, with a grant funded by the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.
Beginning today, Monday, October 26, 2020, through Monday, November 2, 2020, HBCU Heroes has provided Benedict College with a free virtual screening of the documentary, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE, which chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and global icon, as well as how he lived his life making “good trouble” and fighting for equality in America. Please encourage your students to watch the movie.
In an effort to prevent a repeat of 2016’s drop in student voter turnout, HBCU Heroes jumped into action rallying the support of celebrity HBCU alumni, leaders, and community groups to help connect with and educate students on the importance of voting while encouraging them to go vote on Election Day.
