Celebrating over one hundred years of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the 2013 HBCUstory Symposium themed “Inspiring Stories of the Past and Present, For Our Future” offers a chance to hear fresh voices and new ideas from 15 scholars from across the nation.
“Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have produced some of most important African-American voices of our time as well as those of bygone eras. As we continue to move forward, our annual symposium gives members and newcomers alike a chance to listen, learn and think on some of the most important issues facing HBCUs and the African-American community.”
