Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have played an important role in the creation of the Black middle class, both nationally and locally here in Philadelphia. Two of the nation’s oldest HBCUs — Cheyney and Lincoln universities — both lie a short distance away from Philadelphia and the city is full of alumni hailing from both these institutions and many other HBCUs across the country.
This will be the rest in a series of public meetings addressing the historical, educational and cultural significance of Black colleges and their significance to today’s global society.
