Millenial Spotlight

Lee Smith III is an undergraduate student at Tennessee State University majoring in political science.
He’s from Chicago, IL and being from that city has guided his passion for politics. Outside of the classroom Lee has interned on every level of government.
Starting the summer after his freshman year he moved from the municipal level, to state, and recently finished an internship with the U.S Senate.
Toward the beginning of 2016 he started an initiative to spread political awareness to everyone, but with a focus on the HBCU community.
The name of the initiative is Stay Woke HBCU.
While spreading political awareness Lee hopes to eliminate stereotypes associated with being Black in America and being a HBCU Student in America.
