'What My Kids Learned from My HBCU Reunion'

A Tougaloo College alumna shares a reunion weekend with her children, and recaptures the essence of the black college experience.

I went to an HBCU because I felt at home when I visited the campus. What I didn’t realize was that while skin color may not be much of an issue, diversity exists in other ways. HBCUs are a mecca of artsy students, nerdy students, entrepreneurial students, traditional college-aged students, and returning adult students. Differences exist within all people, and my HBCU was a safe place for the birth and development of many schools of thought for young minds.
