+Controversy Over 16-Year-Old FAMU Student Ralph Jones Who Chose an HBCU Over Harvard
Ralph Jones Jr., a brilliant 16-year-old who had his pick of colleges and chose Florida A&M University, chatted with The Root about why he went with a historically black school over an Ivy League, and the negative attention he’s getting for his decision.
This warms my heart. Shoutout to all the current students and alum of HBCU’s everywhere!
