In addition to providing an opportunity for everyone to watch the film by offering screenings free of charge, the CEO of Disney Robert Iger announced that Disney will donate $1.5 million to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF).
The UNCF website says, “'A mind is a terrible thing to waste.' For more than seven decades, this principle has remained at the heart of UNCF, enabling us to raise more than $4.8 billion and help more than 450,000 students and counting not just attend college, but thrive, graduate and become leaders. We do this in three ways: By awarding more than 10,000 students scholarships, worth more than $100 million, each year. By providing financial support to 37 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). And by serving as the nation's leading advocate for the importance of minority education and community engagement."
