Angelina Jolie rides the electric slide to celebrate Zahara’s departure from Spelman

If you still think of Angelina Jolie’s kids as, well, kids, know that she just sent her second to college. On Sunday, the Oscar winner announced that her 17-year-old daughter, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, had enrolled at Spelman, the famed HBCU based in Atlanta, Georgia, which counts Alice Walker and Stacey Abrams among its alumni. . “A very special place and an honor to have a family member as a new Spelman girl,” she captioned an Instagram of Jolie-Pitt with five of her “Spelman sisters” as the announcement.

It’s not every day that you send your daughter off to college (especially such a prestigious one), which is why Jolie made sure to celebrate this milestone in style. A video taken at the same event as the Instagram shows Jolie riding the electric slide with alumni from Spelman and Morehouse, another esteemed HBCU.

Jolie adopted Jolie-Pitt from her home country of Ethiopia in 2005. She was in a relationship with Brad Pitt at the time, and later described the addition of Jolie-Pitt and Maddox, the first child ‘she adopted, to their family as a moment more important than getting married. And lest you think Jolie-Pitt was admitted to Spelman solely on the basis of her scion status, the teenager also built her resume: she was part of Jolie’s ultimately successful campaign to pass the law on violence against women.

Jolie still has a few years left before her empty nesting days. She and Pitt also share Knox, 14; Shiloh, 16 years old; and Maddox, 18. (The latter would not yet be enrolled in the university.)
