Over 900 students from Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College packed Spelman’s Sisters Chapel on Thursday, April 4th for a LITTLE conversation with cast members Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Marsai Martin and Director Tina Gordon. Welcomed by moderator, Spelmanite Kennedy Rue-McCollough, students and teachers went wild as the ladies walked on stage.
Kennedy chatted with the ladies about the importance of women empowerment and how to uplift your sister.
