HBCU Proud Week 4

It’s Black History Month, and KAC is HBCU Proud!

DID YOU KNOW: The first colleges for African Americans were established largely through the efforts of black churches with the support of the American Missionary Association and the Freedmen’s Bureau. The second Morrill Act of 1890 required states—especially former confederate states—to provide land-grants for institutions for black students if admission was not allowed elsewhere. As a result, many Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) were founded. (Source: The National Museum of African American History and Culture)

HBCU Proud Week 3

It’s Black History Month, and KAC is HBCU Proud!

Prior to the Civil War, the education of Black Americans was prohibited in most Southern states and often discouraged in Northern states resulting in only a few Black schools being in existence — Cheyney University (est. 1837), University of the District of Columbia (1851), Lincoln University (1854), and Wilberforce University (1856). – HBCU FirstHere are this week’s Knoxville Alumnae Chapter members who are HBCU Proud! #dstknoxville#SRDST#DST1913#JoyInOurSisterhood#BlackHistory#EducationalDevelopment
