"The Continuing Significance of HBCUs Today" Panel discussion addressing the roadmap for research and policy related to HBCUs.
The political unrest across the nation has triggered a historic reckoning around race, equity, and the uneven justice throughout America’s communities. I believe that we cannot have a conversation about advancing social justice in our society without talking about the influential role HBCUs play. From research to policy and beyond, historically black colleges and universities fuel the culture of black business, politics, healthcare and entertainment- a topic I explore in this recently published article on LinkedIn.
To further the conversation, I’ve invited some dynamic thought leaders from across the nation to join me for ‘The Continuing Significance of HBCUs Today,’ a live-streamed panel discussion addressing the roadmap for research related to the critical role HBCUs play in the movement for Black equality. I would like to personally invite you to join us in this conversation, Wednesday, August 12 at 12:00 PM EST.
Participating with me in the conversation will be:
