LB09 Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Needed Now More Than EverRegister for Courses
September 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have been in existence for around 168 years providing higher education opportunities to African American students and others who had long been denied entry to Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs). In this session we will learn about the history of HBCUs and about the history of Lincoln University. We will compare and contrast the ideology, mission, and circumstances of southern and northern HBCUs and PWIs. We will look at successes and challenges facing the HBCUs of today.
