Hundreds of parents, educators, community organizers and local celebrities rallied together inside the Cosby Auditorium of Spelman College as a call-to-action to improve parental involvement in their child’s education. The Box Tops for Education ® Town Hall, sponsored by Walmart and Honey Nut Cheerios®, and presented by BET Networks, took place January 24, 2013 and will premiere via webcast on BET.com Monday, February 4.
Viewers can visit btfe.com/townhall to access the webcast and watch as MSNBC contributor and executive editor of Politic365.com Jeff Johnson moderate a rousing discussion among panelists, including Spelman College president Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, and Box Tops for Education brand manager Tommy Hillman shared a broad perspective on how a child’s academic success benefits our society. BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood” star Boris Kodjoe and his wife, actress Nicole Ari Parker, and Grammy Award-Winning artist and mom Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas, also shared anecdotes about innovative ways of educating their children.
“When my son gets good grades, I get animated. I get excited,” said Chilli. “And when I’m excited, he gets excited. I’ll take him somewhere during the weekend to hang out. We have to make them work for it.”
