Slutty Vegan Owner to Send Rayshard Brooks’s Kids to College

Aisha “Pinky” Cole has partnered with Clark Atlanta University to send Rayshard Brooks’s four children to college. Rayshard Brooks (a Black man) was shot on June 12th, 2020 in a Wendy’s parking lot by Atlanta police.

The partnership between Cole and Clark Atlanta University will provide all four of Brooks’s children with a scholarship worth $600,000 (covering full tuition, meals, room and board). Brooks was the father of four children, three young daughters and a 13-year old stepson. The scholarship will be available to them when it is time for them to attend college, post-high school. President George T. French Jr., Ph.D. of CAU stated, “It was without hesitation that we made the decision to partner with our notable alumni and entrepreneur Pinky Cole to help the family and children of Mr. Rayshard Brooks. The senseless death of Mr. Brooks will undoubtedly have long-term financial effects on the family, and these scholarships will not only provide them with a means to access a world class education, but will help them on their pathway of success.” More information regarding the statement can be found on the CAU website.

Pinky Cole is an alumna of Clark Atlanta University, the CEO of Slutty Vegan (a vegan burger joint) in Atlanta, and founder of The Pinky Cole Foundation (a nonprofit organization that empowers teens, college students, and young adults to become entrepreneurs with educational programs and opportunities). She expressed in a Slutty Vegan Facebook post, “Enough is enough. When will the injustice end? Rest In Peace to Rayshard Brooks, condolences to his family, and everyone who has been affected by police brutality.”
