BET’s The Quad has kicked off it’s second season and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities inspired show continues to tackle much needed issues like the lack of funding at these institutions and much more. Cecil Diamond the band director played by Ruben Santiago-Hudson has been keeping it real.
“We jumped right on it, because it’s a very important issue. We have a great writing staff,” explained Santiago-Hudson of schools lacking funding. “The real essential things that we need to have our eyes on as the African-American community.”
