I take pride in having chosen to attend an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities). Like many blessed, mentored, hard-working and inspirational students, I had many choices of post-high school schools to choose from, including HBCUs and Ivy League schools. I made the choice to matriculate at Hampton University. I have been pleased with that choice through all these years.
I get the kind of pride from my undergraduate institution that many have... deeply wired in my psyche with warm nostalgic remembrances. So, it is with that pride, that I was happy to see this spread come through my emails today: US Airways is doing a multiple-page spread on HBCUs. Begin on Page 48.
I hope you enjoy it.
