Topping it off she is a proud alum to Lincoln University located in Pennsylvania.
The discussion will include but not be limited to talking about the history of HBCU student activism and how that is setting the stage for students in today’s age. It will talk about how HBCUs have been challenging and advancing on voting rights, healthcare access, police reform and having improvements done for secondary education. Adding on the topic for how HBCUs support and affirm their students in their identity while nurturing and developing them as leaders. As well as how our nation can better learn and support HBCUs.
