Angelina Jolie’s daughter Zahara Jolie-Pitt has moved into the HBCU Spelman College for her freshman year of classes, and Jolie celebrated the news with a social media post like all moms seeing their kids off to college in the 21st century are wont to do.

Jolie posted a photo of Zahara at a party with some new friends and wrote that it’s “an honor to have a family member as a new Spelman girl.” Spelman is a private, historically-black, women’s liberal arts college in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s the oldest known private HBCU women’s college and boasts very notable alumni including Stacey Abrams, novelist Alice Walker, and actress Keisha Knight Pulliam.

The actress was also recently filmed at a Los Angeles-based send-off event for incoming freshmen at Spelman and the nearby HBCU for men, Morehouse College. The humorous video shows Jolie trying to get the steps right for an “Electric Slide” dance during the event.

Jolie adopted Zahara in 2005 with her ex-husband Brad Pitt. They have five more kids together: twins Vivienne and Knox, 14, Shiloh, 16, Pax, 18, and Maddox, 20.
