Or that a black male may be afforded a college education on the UNCF while they aren’t able to afford to send their own sons to college.
See? These things here?

This makes me furious. Those scholarships are super hard to get. In the seven years I worked for a higher education program for low income and/or first generation college students (majority of the students served were African American), none of our students ever got one. I can’t tell you how many times I had seniors who couldn’t graduate because they ran out of student aid and there were almost no scholarships that fit them. I guess like you said, a lot of it is in people’s heads.

Like what you read? Give Jordan Bray a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
