8 Black Celebrities You Didn’t Know Graduated with a STEM Degree

Loni Love (1)

Comedienne and “The Real” Co-Host Loni Love
The talk-show host earned a degree in electrical engineering from Prairie View A&M University. “Growing up in Detroit, I worked at the automobile factory with engineers,” Love explained to Essence. She said she started doing stand-up to make extra money while in college. Love worked her way into an engineering project manager position before deciding to pursue a career in comedy.

Montell Williams (1)

Former Talk Show Host Montel Williams
Williams earned a Bachelor of Science in engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. “My focus wasn’t as much in building things as it was a way of thinking and a paradigm for problem solving,” he told the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. “Engineering provides a strong math and science backbone, and also a framework for analysis. You learn to look at problems by breaking them into their component parts and then putting them back together in a sensible way.”
