The Smollett Brothers Join the Fight to Save Bennett College

Bennett College is one of only two women only HBCUs that is currently open. However, they are in jeopardy of losing its accreditation and need $5 million by February 1, 2019 to keep its doors open.

Actors Jussie & Jake Smollett are among many celebrities that are joining the fight to keep the college open.

“In the 1930s we had 121 #HBCUs now we’re at 101. Don’t let us be down to 100 if #BennettCollege, who had made the education of black women a priority since 1926, closes it’s doors”.
