The HBCU Power Awards was founded by Morehouse graduate, Sundance film producer, and event producer Jash’d Kambui Belcher. The inaugural ceremony took place in 2017 and has since aimed to “serve as a platform to celebrate Black excellence and to highlight the importance of HBCUs in our communities,” Belcher said. “Our honorees embody the spirit of success and commitment to community that HBCUs have instilled in students for decades.”
At the soiree, honorees can pay homage to their alma maters by collecting this unique distinction, thanks to sponsors Ford, Amazon, Morehouse College, and Bank of America. The glowing group of honorees includes Andrew Young (Howard University), Pinky Cole (CEO, Slutty Vegan/Clark Atlanta), Charles King (CEO, MACRO/Howard University), Cynthia Bowman (SVP Chief Diversity Officer, Bank of America/Spelman College), Datari Turner (President, Foxxhole Productions), April Ryan (White House Correspondent, Morgan State University) and Henry Goodgame (VP, External and Alumni Relation, Morehouse College).
Additionally, the HBCU Power Awards platform continues to open the door to new and innovative fundraising at Morehouse College and provide a space to attract young students to HBCUs.
