Langston Hughes High School students to receive free 10G Hotspots
100 Black Men of America, Inc. and 1Million Project collaborate to bring Sprint-powered digital access to students
Langston Hughes High School of Fulton County Schools (FCS) became one of the beneficiary schools of an initiative to close the homework gap for students without Internet access at home. Multiple districts came together to celebrate the collaboration between 1 Million Project Foundation and 100 Black of America (BMOA). Langston Hughes High School is among many schools in the metro Atlanta area and the third in FCS to become a recipient of free 10G, Sprint-powered WiFi hotspots for students lacking reliable connectivity.
As a long-established community partner with a focus on education, 100 Black Men of America will work with schools, like Langston Hughes High, where they already mentor students who will receive devices. They are working to expand their mentorship programs into other schools across multiple counties to meet these digital access needs. The Atlanta Metro area is the first among multiple cities where 1Million Project Foundation and 100 BMOA are joining forces for students.
