Through the company’s Dream In Black platform, AT&T has celebrated Black culture and its many creators throughout the year. According to AT&T, their Dream In Black campaign embodies a mindset where success can look like anything we can dream.


To continue their efforts of empowering success, AT&T has launched two contests for the change-makers and innovators who Dream in Black — “Rising Future Makers” specifically for HBCU students. AT&T is also looking to help HBCU students rise as the next generation of changemakers.

If you are a current student at any HBCU that is doing game-changing work in your community and on campus, AT&T is looking for you!


The contest is running now through Oct. 31, so it is not too late to register! Just post a 30–60-second video on Instagram, Twitter, or TikTok using the hashtags #ATTRisingFutureMaker and #DreamInBlack. (click for more details)
