Los Angeles: The dazzling American singer Beyonce has announced to donate $100,000 for scholarships to four historically Black colleges and universities. The program will offer scholarship to a student in Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce University in Ohio, Tuskegee University in Alabama and Bethune-Cookman University in Florida.
The singer who is African American by heritage has just announced about the donation this Monday after her performance on Saturday at the Coachella Music Festival. The Festival which was in the Southern Californian desert on Saturday was described as homage to education and African American culture.
There have been many singers and rappers of black descent who have donated plenty to different causes related to the black people.
Ivy McGregor, the person who administers the Beyonce’s BeyGood foundation, said in a statement announcing the scholarship that they honor all institutions of higher learning for maintenance of culture and creating environments for optimal learning which expands dreams and the seas of possibilities for students and their future.
The more than 100 historically black U.S. colleges and universities were all created before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when white people dominated institutions of higher education could bar African American students from enrolling for higher studies.
