ENSPIRE Contributor: Chante` Wiltz
On October 18th, BET+ announced that the second season of their hit reality show College Hill: Celebrity Edition is in the works. The season will feature a new class of celebrities that will come together to attend one of the prestigious Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs): Alabama State University (ASU). The celebrities joining the class are Ray J, Amber Rose, Joseline Hernandez, Tiffany Pollard, Parker McKenna Posey, Iman Shumpert, Kwaylon Rogers, and O’Ryan Browner. Each one has the goal of crossing the stage by the end of the season just like a normal college student. They all will be able to enjoy a college campus life, yet will they be able to step out of the spotlight of their daily lives and face the academic challenges ahead of them in order to succeed?
For this season BET+ has partnered with Edmonds Entertainment and This Way Out Media to enhance the black college student experience for the cast. The ASU campus’s location in Montgomery, Alabama provides the company with the opportunity to highlight African American history while bringing much-needed attention to the importance and power of the Black community’s role in the country’s engagement. Along with this, being at ASU for the series allows the legacy of Black academic excellence as a product of HBCUs. In conjunction to this, Alabama State University’s President, Dr. Quinton T. Ross Jr., stated that he “wants to thank Tracey Edmonds, Sean Rankine, Mark Seliga, and BET+ for selecting ASU as the location for the popular reality show that gives a global stage to the academic excellence, rich history and unique culture of the nation’s HBCUs.”.
BET+ is a venture created by both BET and Tyler Perry Studios. It has become a major streaming service within and for the Black community. The service offers thousands of hours of hit movies, Tv shows, stage plays, and more that embrace and display the Black culture.
