“Change is possible,” said award winning recording artist and activist John Legend, speaking about the importance of higher education during his keynote speech at the 11th annual Black, Brown & College Bound Summit at the Tampa Convention Center on Thursday.  In 2006, Hillsborough Community College held the first Black, Brown & College Bound Summit in Tampa to address the national problem of a lack of student success, in particular among African-American and Hispanic males. According to the Hillsborough Community College website, the goals of the summit are to provide information about successful strategies, explore mentoring programs that enable the success of young men and to provide the latest research on methods higher education institutions can employ to increase access, persistence, retention and graduation rates. An estimated 700 people attended the luncheon with John Legend.
