WASHINGTON (ABC7) — According to Campus Pride Index, of the 107 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, only 21 percent have active university-sanctioned LGBT organizations. Hoping to inspire change, Guy Anthony and George Johnson recently launched the Black, Gifted and Whole Foundation. They joined to tell us how they wish to create a new narrative and inspire more inclusion on HBCU campuses!
Black, Gifted & Whole is excited to endorse the University of Maryland Eastern Shore's gay-straight alliance, Uniquely Defined. Uniquely Defined's mission is to create an inclusive environment for LGBTQIA+ students.
In an effort to strengthen a community and build up a new generation of achievers; the Black, Gifted and Whole Foundation aims to inspire social change with the launch of their HBCU Scholarship Ambassador Program, where selected students will receive financial support and mentoring throughout their college matriculation. We recently had the opportunity to interview the foundation’s Co-Founders, Guy Anthony and George Johnson.
