The lineup for Support Black Colleges‘ inaugural HBCU Virtual Homecoming musical gala has been announced.
The list of artists includes Ari Lennox, Kirk Franklin and 2 Chainz.
The five-day event that starts on October 21 consists of a Build Your Own Brand business and entrepreneurship conference; a “Pitch Please” startup competition in the style of “Shark Tank;” a step show competition; and separate hip-hop and gospel concerts.
The HBCU Virtual Homecoming will stream on Support Black Colleges’ YouTube and Facebook channels. SBC aims to raise $500,000 for HBCUs to use as scholarships and funding.
Travis Scott has promised to pay a semester’s tuition for five HBCU students.
“You can’t stop Homecoming, our culture is too big and our HBCU community deserves more. These times have proved to be trying but we are going to give HBCU students everything we have,” Corey Arvinger and Justin Phillips, CEOs and co-founders of Support Black Colleges, said in a statement.
