10 Black Celebrities with College Degrees | Heart of the City

Though most people find it fascinating, there is very little fanfare involved in exposing a celebrity's more intellectual side. The fast life of Hollywood often negates the theory that a college education is necessary for success, especially when it appears that so few celebrities actually have them. But it seems that very infrequently is attention paid to the black celebs who have furthered their educations beyond high school. Though there are literally hundreds of famous people who have earned college degrees, here are a few African American celebrities that not many people think of...

Keshia Knight-Pulliam - Yes, little Rudy Huxtable is all grown up. Following the Cosby years, fans didn't see much of Keshia Knight Pulliam. But after graduating from Spelman College with a degree in Sociology, Keshia shed her "baby" image, appearing in lingerie layouts, and starring in films with more grown-up themes.

Gabrielle Union - This be-dimpled beauty is most known for donning a cheerleader's uniform in 2000 film, Bring it On. But this actress has been seen in a slew of movies. Nonetheless, few realize that she possesses a degree in Sociology from UCLA.

Regina Hall - "Candy", the curvy stripper in 1999 film, The Best Man turned out to be a moonlighting scholar. But in real life, the actress, Regina Hall really is a scholar. She has a Masters Degree in Journalism from New York University.

Terrence Howard - Iron Man's original sidekick, Terrence Howard (also a Best Man star in 1999) has a lot of skills. In addition to being a proficient guitar player, this Hollywood star holds a degree in Chemical Engineering.

Hill Harper - Hill Harper has been a staple on both the small and big screens since 1994. But the corny "Forty Ounces of Love" singer from 1998 movie, Hav Plenty---graduated magna cum laude from Brown University, and even has a degree from Harvard Law School.

David Alan Grier - When most people think of Yale University, the image of funny man (and "In Living Color" alum) David Alan Grier probably does not come to mind. But in addition to securing a Masters of Fine Arts from Yale's School of Drama, Grier also has a BA from the University of Michigan.
