It’s a Different Worldddddd, then where ya came from… Isn’t that the truth! But luckily, the cast of “A Different World” are looking to make it a better one!
If you attended an HBCU, it may have been because of the immense effect “A Different World” had on you. And even if that wasn’t the case, there are very few people on the planet that can say after watching just one episode about the fictional HBCU, they didn’t at least want to visit one. Now, members of the nostalgic cast have reunited to spread a little love to a few real life Historically Black Colleges & Universities that need it most.
Jasmine Guy,Kadeem Harrison, Cree Summer, and Darryl M. Bell teamed up to announce up with Home Depot to announce the winners of their “Retool Your School” grant. In total, Nine HBCUs were given $360,000 in an effort to help rehab their campuses.
