Pinkett Smith Gives $1M To Baltimore School

“Actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who learned her craft at the Baltimore School for the Arts before launching a successful film and television career, is donating $1 million to a major renovation and expansion campaign at the school, officials announced yesterday. The School for the Arts, considered one of the top public arts high schools in the country, plans to name its new theater the Jada Pinkett Smith Theater. At Pinkett Smith’s request, the theater will be dedicated to rapper Tupac Shakur, a former classmate who was shot and killed in 1996.”
