Hip-hop social-media maven Karen Civil is headed to the ‘First in the South’ state to vote to speak with college students on behalf of presidential candidate Tom Steyer. Civil will host the Tom Steyer #HBCU2030 College Town Hall on the campus of Claflin University. Highlighting Steyer’s commitment to creating pathways of opportunity for African American students, Civil will lead an empowering discussion on the tools needed for unlocking your potential and living on purpose. The conversation will also address increasing access to higher education for black students, college affordability, the student loan debt crisis, and HBCU innovation. 

Civil’s voice has been influential at impacting views and perceptions in the political arena. She served as a guest speaker for President Obama’s ‘Champions of Change’ event honoring young women and worked with Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential run.

On hosting the #HBCU2030 College Town Hall for Tom Steyer, Civil said, “It is important to build a space where students can gather to talk about the pressing issues of today and tomorrow and see the role that they have to play in those issues. Education should be a right for all Americans. Also, as we celebrate Black History Month, I believe it is equally important to honor the legacy and contributions of our ancestors who fought for this civil liberty.” 

“As the old saying goes, ‘It takes a village.’ I am thrilled to have Karen lead this empowering discussion and join the village we are creating of students, entrepreneurs, teachers, and legislators who are advocating for educational opportunity and equality,” said Steyer. “Karen’s life story is one that reflects the kind of America that I am committed to building. As we move Gen Z forward, It’s going to take a genuine spirit of humanity and hustle to transform the world and empower our youth to achieve what can sometimes feel impossible.”

Steyer recently rolled out the most robust HBCU plan of all of the presidential candidates. Steyer’s 4-part plan will invest $125 billion in federal resources over 10 years to enhance the White House Initiative on HBCUs and strengthen Centers of Innovation across HBCU campuses, establish a Board of Regents for long-term governance, and foster community impact partnerships across public and private sectors.  

The Town Hall Meeting will be held tomorrow(February 18) at Claflin University in Orangeburg, SC between 7-9pm.
