Howard University has been named the top private institution to graduate Pell Grant students on the new @USNews social mobility list. #BestColleges Social mobility deals with the movement of individuals or groups up or down from one socio-economic level to another, often by changing jobs or marriage.

Media, no matter the format (print/written, social media, online, tv, etc.), is a platform. It was designed to give a voice to those who are voiceless and provide expression for that which is in danger of being suppressed. While many use it properly others abuse it and causes media to morph into a shell of its former self.
Whatever gift you have, Zacari believes you should use it as an inspiration to your community and the people around you; use your talent to BE REMEMBERED!
In McMurtry’s book, Henry felt the exact same way. It follows the journey of Henry as he makes the decision to attend an HBCU with his sister, Hope being inspired by his trailblazing choice. His book is available on Amazon.
