As an HBCU graduate (of Morehouse College, to be exact), Samuel L. Jackson is well aware of the importance of Black education. AfroTech previously reported that he showed his appreciation for this education by making a huge $5 million donation to Spelman College (which is where his wife, LaTanya Richardson, graduated from).

The donation, which is said to be the largest of its kind in the HBCU’s history, is meant to help rebuild the college’s John D. Rockefeller Fine Arts Building.

“The love that both LaTanya and Sam continue to exhibit for Spelman since their time on stage decades ago is heartwarming,” said Mary Schmidt Campbell, Ph.D., president of Spelman, in a written statement. “These living legends met and acted together on stage on our campus. Their dedication to their artistry will leave a legacy that will inspire students in the Atlanta University Center for years to come.”
