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)

Knoxville Alumnae Chapter members are HBCU Proud! #dstknoxville#SRDST#DST1913#JoyInOurSisterhood#BlackHistory#EducationalDevelopment



Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy Drive Thru

Today the Knoxville Alumnae Chapter’s Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy girls picked up their program supplies! We’d love to see all of our girls in person as we enrich and enhance their education. We focus on math, science, and technology, their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership, but the work must go on virtually! #ServiceInOurHeart#dstknoxville#DST1913#SRDST

HBCU Proud Week 2

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

DID YOU KNOW: The Institute for Colored Youth (briefly the African Institute at its founding) opened on a farm outside Philadelphia in 1837. It is today Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, which is part of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. It is the first Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

Here are this week’s Knoxville Alumnae Chapter members who are HBCU Proud!

The first HBCUs were founded in Pennsylvania and Ohio before the American Civil War to provide Black youths with an education at a time when Blacks were largely prevented from attending established colleges and universities. Today, there are 107 HBCUs with more than 228,000 students enrolled.
