Harvard Is What Yara Shahidi Chose

Black-ish star Yara Shahidi joins Malia Obama as students of Harvard

Yara Shahidi, one of the stars of Black-ish, has revealed that she will be repping Crimson: She announced on social media that she will be attending Harvard University in the fall of 2018.

Shahidi, who plays Zoey on the show, posted a photo of herself rocking a crimson Harvard hoodie, captioned with a quote by the ever-relevant James Baldwin, accompanied by the hashtag #CrimsonPride.


 “The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated,” the Baldwin quote reads.

The brilliant star revealed earlier this year that she got into every college she applied to.
