Most sports fans are familiar with the outstanding football and basketball programs at historically Black colleges and universities, but many baseball players from Black colleges have also gone on to the majors.

Nine more NBA stars who could be on the move
NBARumor: Timberwolves could look to move Jeff Teague, Robert Covington
The Minnesota Timberwolves could be aggressive in their pursuit to improve their roster with Gersson Rosas taking over the front office this summer. Among the potential trade cogs are point guard Jeff Teague and Robert Covington, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
Covington, an undrafted prospect out of Tenessee State, has risen as one of the most reliable 3-and-D players in the league. In 2018, he was selected into the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

University Of Alaska Readies For Budget Slash: 'We May Likely Never Recover'
The University of Alaska System is bracing for a 41% cut to its budget, after Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed a $130 million line item in the state's budget.
The announcement came last Friday, three days before the fiscal year began on July 1. Dunleavy vetoed roughly $400 million items in the budget, with education receiving the largest cut.
The university system will lose $130 million from the veto — on top of an additional $5 million previously agreed upon by legislators. The governor's 182 line-item cuts also included Medicaid, senior benefit payments and homelessness services.

Saint Paul’s College property sold (Dec 2017)
The former Saint Paul’s College might one day welcome students again to its campus in Brunswick County — but possibly under a different name.
Xinhua Education Investment Corp., a Chinese-backed group, purchased the remaining property of the historically black college on Nov. 27, according to county court records.
The group secured about 130 acres and about 30 campus buildings in Lawrenceville, the county seat, the records show.

“Challenge by choice” was the motto of Saint Paul’s College, which closed in 2013 because of financial problems and declining student enrollment.
Now the citizens of Lawrenceville are living up to that motto — by taking up the challenge of collecting and preserving artifacts documenting the 125-year history of the historically black college.
Lawrenceville residents and other supporters of Saint Paul’s College have opened a museum to showcase documents and memorabilia, including an original copy of “Adventure in Faith,” an autobiography written by the Rev. James Solomon Russell, who was born enslaved, became an Episcopal priest and founded the school in 1888.

A Separate War: Pioneering Black Marines Endured, Prevailed
17 May 2019
The Associated Press | By TOM FOREMAN Jr.
The first African Americans admitted to the Marine Corps after Roosevelt's order were put in segregated units, starting with their training. At a swampy, bug-infested camp called Montford Point, adjacent to but separate from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, they endured indignities — but they also paved the way for others who came after.
