Kevin "HEART" show love: Donates $50,000 to Texas Southern University Marching Band

This is really awesome! On Juneteenth it was reported that Kevin Hart pledged a whopping $50,000 to Texas Southern University‘s marching band.  This is great because there is always chatter about HBCU's being in financial trouble.  In fact, as recent as 6 months ago, the The Root posted an article, entitled, "Cash-Strapped HBCUs Seek a Lifeline ."   The article mentioned some of the shortcomings and how the schools have seen federal and state funding diminish.   It is definitely refreshing when someone shows genuine interest and SUPPORT for HBCU's.  I often say, "a vision without finances is just a hallucination!"   Way to go Kevin!  Now,  if only ALL the HBCU Alums would just donate a fraction of Kevin paid, then the schools wouldn't be in trouble!

Now you say what?
