“Leaving Home: An HBCU Story” is a brainchild of Rustin “Roundup Russy” Moore that began as a Kickstarter film project entitled “First 48: HBCU Edition.” Since shot in August of 2011 in Los Angeles, CA and on the campus of NC A&T in Greensboro, NC there have been some challenges (As described in Russy’s Director’s Notes) but we are proud to deliver a 100% creative project from Alumni Roundup.
“I wanted to bring the HBCU experience to children who may not have the opportunity to go on HBCU tours. I think it will also be a resource to parents to ease their concerns of sending their child off to school at one of our sacred institutions.”
My goals are to:
- Expose our youth to more positive HBCU content
- Revolutionize the admissions and recruiting methods of HBCU’s by delivering a virtual tour/documentary.”
