America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities are teeming with some of the most brilliant minds on Earth, but Hollywood’s gates are systematically shut to them – an HBCU alumna with the gift of Shakespeare stands virtually no chance of having her script read by a studio. Meanwhile, the severely underfunded HBCUs, many at the brink of bankruptcy, are struggling in their mission to build meaningful futures for hundreds of thousands of gifted young people.
Realm passionately joins their crusade. We pledge to endow our HBCUs with 10% of Steal Away’s assignable net profits. And while Wall Street looks to the Ivy League for its recruits, Realm will tirelessly draw upon the outstanding literary, performing arts, and technical talent emerging from our HBCUs in the production of its entertainment, breaking artists of color into the $2.3 trillion global media industry.
