Our Historically Black Colleges and Universities were founded on rich traditions of resilience, innovation, community, academic excellence, and pride. Throughout history, these stellar cultural institutions have persevered through our nation’s most challenging times. As we look toward the 155th Anniversary of Juneteenth, we must remember the heroism and tenacity of our ancestors before us.
