Emergency Tele Townhall

Thursday, October 10
8:30 pm ET / 5:30 pm PT
Participant Dial-in:  866-757-0756

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) were originally created as the only collegiate institutions that served African American students in states that segregated students.  After the Supreme Court found “separate but equal” unconstitutional, HBCUs have broadened their missions and have produced some of the largest numbers of African American professionals. Several states including Maryland continue to underfund HBCUs. In collaboration with the Lawyers Committee, this town hall will bring awareness to this key education issue.

Moderator: April Ryan

Speakers: 
Derrick Johnson, NAACP,  President and CEO
Kristen Clarke, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, President and Executive Director
