HBCUs Are Bridging the Gap Between Africa and the Diaspora

With the success of the Year of Return and the open discussions on Pan-Africanism, a part of me wondered when Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) would come into the picture.

3rd Annual Black Fathers Rock Award Ceremony

Greetings All, I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd Annual Black Fathers Rock Award Ceremony and wanted to give an overview.
