The Blackprint was invited to attend the premiere of Amazon Prime’s The Burial, hosted by The National HBCU Pre-Law Summit happening at the University of D.C. This organization was designed to target and engage with students who are interested in pursuing a law degree who attend HBCUs. At this summit, films showcasing the impact of Black lawyers are shown and then discussed, meant to empower the new generation of law students entering the field. This event wanted to show the hard and brilliant work that Black lawyers are expected to do at every point in their career, which is why William Gary is an excellent example for someone who has worked hard to be better for his community and someone who has helped others take back what is theirs.

As a parting gift, my high school librarian gave me the book Required Readings for the Disenfranchised Freshman written by Kristen R. Lee. I put off reading it during the summer but recently finished it within the first month of my freshman year of college. I’ve found myself in the same situation as the main character, Savannah Howard. The two of us are living similar lives as young Black students starting college at predominately white institutions, scared for our lives. Both of us are struggling to fully accept that our capabilities and accomplishments have guided us into the next phase of our lives. Both of us understand that there is a new game afoot, and we hope that life has equipped us with the skills to overcome it. However, our paths diverge when anti-Black hate crimes begin happening on her campus.
