Actor Michael B. Jordan has been hard at work with his directorial debut, Creed III. Not only has he been tasked with leading a great cast on and off screen, but he’s also recruited pro boxers like Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Jose Benavidez to be a part of the project. Now, he’s on the road pushing his latest feature. Earlier this week, he released the first trailer for the major motion picture, but he offered a little surprise to the students at Clark Atlanta University.
This month, Michael B. Jordan traveled down to Atlanta, Georgia and shared an exclusive look at Creed III with a special group of students at the Atlanta University Center. In addition, he gifted a select group of students $3,000 scholarships and tickets to the film’s premiere. To cap off the event, he answered a few questions about the upcoming Hollywood project.
“I feel like college in general, as you know, I never went but you know, obviously, my family and friends and just understanding what HBCU culture does to incubate Black excellence and how we square it, it’s nurtured and grown and developed,” Michael B. Jordan told Nerds of Color about his experience at Clark Atlanta University.
“It was really important for me to get this movie to HBCUs. But then also just the representation. I want them to be able to see themselves on screen in a really big way.”
The whole world will have an opportunity to see Creed III when it hits theaters in March 2023. Until then, check out a quick recap of Jordan’s trip to CAU.
