The podcast, available weekly on the reVolver Podcast Network and downloadable on all platforms (e.g. iTunes, GooglePlay, Spotify) and on its website, HBCUbiquityPodcast.com, will engage a wide range of guests, including presidents of HBCUs, faculty, alumni, students, parents and other supporters.
"The Foundation has actively hosted panels and discussions over the years on the Fantastic Voyage and at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion," Joyner Jr. said. "This podcast is our chance to have a year-round conversation about our HBCUs. We want to go beyond the typical rhetoric, and have meaningful conversations."
HBCUbiquity, produced by the Tom Joyner Foundation, is a weekly podcast that offers in-depth, honest and straightforward conversations with administrators, faculty, students, celebrities and experts about the future of HBCUs, fundraising, accreditation, student recruitment and enrollment as well as the accomplishments of faculty who are doing interesting research, student scholars about their current accomplishments and alumni who are making a difference in their communities, and topical trends and issues related to the African-American community.
The inaugural show features an insightful overview of the foundation's history, its programs and how HBCUbiquity represents the dawn of a new era for the nonprofit. In future shows, Joyner will get in-depth on the current and future of the CIAA, including interviews with Jacqie McWilliams, the CIAA commissioner, and a special conversation with Dr. Anthony Davis, special consultant to Livingstone College.
You also won't want to miss the episode on Bennett College's fight for survival, featuring a rare interview with its interim college president, Dr. Phyllis Worthy Hawkins who will share some of her strategies on navigating the institution through this difficult period. On that same episode, longtime Talladega College President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins discusses his experiences and successes in getting an HBCU's accreditation restored.
