The Eternals actress’ visit came as no surprise, as she expressed her excitement for Zahara’s admission to Spelman during Summer of 2022. At the time, she shared an Instagram post about it and showed off beautiful pics of her daughter’s send-off party.
“Zahara with her Spelman sisters! Congratulations to all new students [who are] starting this year,” she wrote in a photo of Zahara surrounded by fellow Spelman girls. “A very special place and an honor to have a family member as a new Spelman girl. #spelman #spelmancollege #spelmansisters #HBCU.”
Spelman is a private Atlanta-based all-girl HBCU that was founded as the Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary in 1881.
