A new and exciting series on Twitch is bringing the vibrance of HBCUs to life in a way we didn’t know we needed! Brought to us by the Twitch channel BlackStream Live, “The Foundation” is a new series on the BlackStream Live Network highlighting and amplifying the HBCU experience. BlackStream is already known for exploring the way culture, music, and more are embedded into HBCU life.

The Foundation is unique in the voices and vibes that were created to make this project. The host will be none other than Jackson State University alum Cortez Bryant! Well known for managing the Young Money brand, he is a successful executive in the music industry, as well as  an entrepreneur. However, Bryant won’t be the only familiar face! The show will feature special guests like Roderick Little, who is the Director of Bands for JSU’s famous Sonic Boom of the South as well as the Assistant Professor of Music in addition to more influential figures. 

The series will feature four episodes total, which will air every two weeks beginning Saturday June 19th. The very first episode will spotlight the popular athletic programs at Jackson State University. Facets of JSU will be explored, such as its band Sonic Boom, the JSU Innovation Center, plus a music business course that Cortez himself teaches!  On June 31st you can look out for a special on Spellhouse (Spelman College and Morehouse College), which is sure to be packed with rich history. Prairie View A&M University will be profiled in all its glory on July 3rd. Lastly, a profile of the beloved Florida A&M University will wrap up the series on July 17th!
