“Dreaming in Black to me means that I am going to dream the wildest biggest dreams because I have to,” Eryka Anabell says. “I’m inspiring so many other people to Dream in Black.”

Thanks to AT&T Eryka Anabell is closer than ever to making her dreams reality.

“One of the amazing things about attending an HBCU is the ability to have purpose to impact the lives there. That’s my biggest passion and that’s why I’m going into educational policy.”
