Here is some information on the Virtual Walk for Education on Saturday, September 18. The event will feature appearances by Blackish actress Jenifer Lewis, Physician, author and television host Dr. Ian Smith, Grammy-nominated Rapper and DJ MC Lyte, UNCF student scholars and others. The virtual event provides much-needed support to our member HBCUs and deserving students through scholarship support, giving them the opportunity to earn a college degree and to help better our communities. We hope you all will join us for this wonderful program!
The event will be streamed here https://virtualwalk2021.uncf.org/ at 11:00 CDT.
