"Bell`s own education at Del Barton [sic], an all-boys Catholic preparatory boarding school in New Jersey run by Benedictine monks, was nothing like the atmosphere at A Different World`s fictional Hillman College, a historically black institution. 'As I look back, there were some very hard times for me being one out of four black students, out of 400 students at Del Barton,' says Bell, a talkative student but never the class clown."
