Laney College student Reginald James, host of The Black Hour, will be heading to Egypt at the end of May.
Support my journey to Egypt.
James participated in a 2006 trip to Jamaica with Merritt College and is looking forward to visiting Africa for the first time.
"Growing up, I dreamed of going to Egypt," James said. "Then Michael Jackson's 'Remember the Time' video came out when I was at Longfellow (Elementary) and I said, 'I'm going to Egypt.' Now, I've been blessed to have a dream come true."

Priority enrollment in the study aboard program is given to student activists, economically disadvantaged students of color, and single-parent students.
James is currently raising money for the rest of the trip's expenses. He has set up a special blog, California to Cairo to document the trip and accept donations.
"Traveling always makes you grow as a person. This experience will make me a better person for the community I serve," James said. "Besides documenting the trip on the Cali to Cairo blog, I will be making community presentations this summer and through the fall, to share my experiences."
