While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.
This week show we talk about how we can help our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We must help our ancestors who helped us and help the ones that are trying now to help us. But they can help themselves as well we are one. And questions please call in our guest line at (347) 327-9705
HBCUs offer culture, a rich history and rigorous academic programs. Most importantly, they prepare students for leadership and life after graduation. There are 100 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the nation and nine percent of all African American college students attend HBCUs. In 1965, in Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Congress officially defined an HBCU as a school of higher learning whose principal mission was and is the education of African Americans and was accredited and established before 1964.
All HBCUs play a critical role in the American system of higher education. For most of America’s history, African Americans seeking a college education could only get it from an HBCU. email@example.com call in 661-467-2407

One of the partners in the recently announced AIR.U initiative to build wireless broadband networks in college towns is the United Negro College Fund. UNCF plans to leverage this opportunity to put historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) on better footing with other colleges by building strong broadband infrastructure.
Robert Rucker, VP of Planning, Budgets and Information Technology for UNCF, discusses plans to help AIR.U create guidelines and broadband pilot programs for the 500 colleges nationwide represented by the initiative. These plans include using unlicensed white space to bring wireless broadband to colleges and the communities surrounding them.
Mr. Rucker also describes:
the effectiveness of colleges as hubs of broadband innovation programs that are helping more minorities become computer literate and move online creative uses of broadband technology originating in black communities how Federal broadband policy and funding programs can raise all boats

September/October 2014 America’s Worst Colleges
We set out to make a list of the poorest-performing colleges. What we found is that, while good schools are basically all alike, every crappy school is crappy in its own way.

The greatest value of attending college, in addition to mastering information that can eventually evolve into a tangible skill, is learning that a vision and an accomplishment are seperated by hard work. However, one need not have attended college to know any of this. Ancestor El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz ( Malcolm X ) didn't pass the eight grade, yet he never lost a debate, even in the midst of Harvard scholars with Ph.Ds. Therefore, the question must be asked as to whether or not the faculty and / or staff of Historically Black Colleges and Universities really have their students best interests in mind. Although President Barack Obama gave many millions of dollars to HBCUs, not much changed in terms of students collectively creating connections and infrastructure AMONG THEMSELVES. These two elements are the precursors of mass employment that other groups of people utilize in order to live secure and productive lives. If you look at any HBCU Social Medium, however, HBCU football rivalries and homecoming queen stuff is the talk that gets the most coverage. THE GREATEST CREATORS OF BLACK EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES SHOULD BE THE HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, but they are far from being that. Are these colleges being guided by competent people who are just as special as the students who choose to attend them ? The rapidly emerging economies within the African Continent are out of sight, out of mind, and NEVER discussed. And we wonder why unemployment rates of Black people have always been disproportionately higher than that of any other group of people ? So the question of whether or not people who influence HBCU affairs truthfully hold the best interests of the students as priority number one. When it comes to high unemployment within our communities, we have nobody to blame outside of ourselves.
Hotep Kenyatta (Dr Shaka Blaka) speaks re: Language can be a tool of oppression. Clearly few people want to connect themselves to Africa? Why. Because from the 7th century AD onwards, powerful scholars took a passage from Jewish ancient holy texts and misrepresented it as though "dark skin is a curse from God, who cursed Noah's son Ham for seeing his father naked and drunk, etc" Since then, there have been various efforts to hide the black/african nature of all civilization/humanity, and language has not been spared the racists/white nationalists sword of destruction. (NOTE: Let's also remember that an ancient African, or Native South American language may be represented in Latin Script (letters, characters) but that this never means that the original language is Latin/Roman. Only the writing style used to represent the ancient African, etc sounds/spoken language. People get this confused so often, and brainwashing is hard to fix when people don't know they're brainwashed...!
Also listen in for how the concept of ETYMOLOGY is used in racist way.

Michael Hurd began his newspaper career as a sportswriter for the Post in May 1979. His primary beat was covering small college sports, including those involving the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC), a league composed of historically Black colleges. It was that experience which compelled him to write his first book, Black College Football, 1892-1992, the only book that comprehensively documents the legacies of football programs at historically Black colleges. The book was initially released in 1993 and was updated and revised for a second release in 1998. Largely because of his research and writing on Black college football, he wasSp named a member of the National Football Foundation’s Honors Court for Divisional Players, the group that selects small college players to the College Football Hall of Fame. The Hall began inducting players and coaches in 1951, but has only included Divisional Players, those from historically Black colleges and other small colleges, since 1996. That move was helped by Hurd’s research and book, which was used as the primary source for identifying possible Hall of Fame candidates from Black colleges.
