AT&T Dream in Black Launches Rising Future Makers and Partners with HBCU Digital to celebrate Black Heroes

HBCU Digital Network and AT&T Dream In Black debut a new video series “Black Heroes.”

Each episode showcases some of the brightest HBCU alumni pushing the boundaries in corporate and creative spaces. Inspired? You should be. The future belongs to you – and you could represent the next generation of black leaders in entertainment, business, technology and more.

“HBCU Digital is excited to partner with AT&T Dream In Black upon the launch of their Rising Future Makers campaign,” commented Adam Q. Powell, CEO, HBCU Digital Network. “AT&T’s choice, not out of responsibility, to uplift Black Heroes in our communities and to extend their hands to our HBCU community is amazing. Their investment in HBCUs, African American and other underserved communities is not a moment of convenience but a demonstration of their on-going commitment.”
