The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has always uplifted our HBCU community when it comes to personal and career development. This year, they’re letting us know that they also have homecoming covered as well. TMCF is truly going all out with the #RISE: HC2K20 Concert!
Created with the acronym “Recognizing and Investing in Student Excellence,” #RISE is sure to bring an action-packed evening. Airing this Sunday, October 25th at 8:00 pm ET, tune in and celebrate Homecoming from the comfort of home. #RISE is hosted by TMCF national ambassador Terrence J and actress Brandee Evans. The show is produced by A Banner Vision and artist David Banner.
Along with the performances, #RISE will raise funds to support HBCUs and the students they serve. Those who donate a gift of $150 during this special night will unlock a special private curated experience with grammy-nominated Anthony Hamilton. For donors who give $250, they will be able to attend Anthony Hamilton’s show and also receive a gift from Hennessy! All proceeds will support the development of HBCU students through a variety of scholarships, programs, and services.
“RISE HC2K20 is an opportunity for TMCF to tell the important story of our institutions and the students who attend them, while making a greater commitment to ensuring that others will be able to take advantage of an HBCU education in the future,” said Harry L. Williams, President & CEO of TMCF.
Additional events will include HBCU Homecoming DJ Sets and a Unity Step Performance with appearances by Ne-Yo, Lil Baby, Lucky Daye, Shaquille O’Neal, and Deion Sanders. We also can’t forget about the HBCU Roll Call, Halftime Show, and Rap Cypher! The concert will stream on TMCF’s YouTube channel and simulcast on both HBCU Nation and AspireTV.
