Congresswoman Beatty Celebrates National HBCU Week
This week, September 20 to September 26, 2020, is National Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Week. For over a century, HBCUs have provided an affordable, high-quality education to countless students of color. To highlight the significance of National HBCU Week and their lifechanging impact on nearly 300,000 current students and millions of alumni, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said:
“As a proud HBCU graduate of Central State University, I understand firsthand the integral role HBCUs play in the lives of students in and outside the classroom. Every day, more than 100 HBCUs located in 19 states, D.C. and the Virgin Islands inspire the next generation of leaders to stand up, stand out and stand proud. That is why this week and all year long, I join HBCU students, faculty, alumni, and all Americans in celebrating their exemplary history of encouraging and empowering individuals to succeed academically, personally and professionally.”
