Tyra Banks Graduates From Harvard

Tyra Banks, the host and creator of America’s Next Top Model, earned herself a certificate from the Owner/President Management Program at Harvard Business School in Cambridge, Massachusetts February 17.

“In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best,” the Bankable Productions CEO told CBS News in 2011. “So I went to the best.”

According to US Weekly, Banks, who is reportedly of Native American descent, dropped out of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, when she was 17 to pursue modeling.

In 2008, Banks dealt with racism in Hollywood on her talk show. She interviewed three Native American women about the stereotypes they have dealt with:

But in 2009, during Season 13 of America’s Next Top Model, she caused some upset with a bi-racial photo shoot that featured a model who represented a woman who was Native American and East Indian. The model wore a headdress with feathers that flowed to the floor.

And as Chelsea Vowel recently explained in her column for ICTMN, a headdress is earned and wearing one for costume is disrespectful.
