My parents were both graduates of HBCU’s. My mom a Social Worker and my dad a high school Physics and Math teacher. Wanting to give his children the best, we attended private schools but I know my parents must have thought something was missing so my dad made certain that we knew not just our Civil Rights history but the history of our contributions in science and math, and many other areas. As a teen I desired to attend a private Lutheran College with my friends and my dad wouldn’t hear of it. He said I had three choices for college and that it would help me learn more about our who I was as a person and the legacy of black culture in America. Those choices were Tennessee State, Grambling or Spelman. I’m glad I chose an HBCU because it helped bring full circle the lessons my dad provided to us as children about who we were and are.
