Historically Black Colleges & Universities* were established as early as 1837  for former slaves and freedman. HBCU*s served as meeting places during the civil rights struggles of the 1900s and contain repositories of important buildings, books, papers and memorabilia of Black history. 

THERE ARE OVER 100 HBCUs IN THE USA...                                             14 of them are in Alabama--                    & every one of the 14 Alabama HBCUs  has untapped global potential.

                                                                                                        (WE MUST THINK GLOBAL, BUT 1ST,  WE MUST PLAN LOCAL.)
