The Toni Morrison Society will present Lincoln University with the 26th bench placement from the Bench by the Road Project on Thursday, November 14.
“We are honored to place this historical marker on our storied campus as a demonstration of the University’s commitment to remembering the lives of Africans who were enslaved,” said President Brenda A. Allen. “By placing this bench at the heart of our campus, it will be a constant reminder to advance the legacy to “educate for freedom” as envisioned by Horace Mann Bond, the University’s eighth president.
 
The Bench by the Road will be placed in front of Azikiwe-Nkrumah Hall—shown in this architect’s rendering—when renovations are complete.
Lincoln University becomes only the second HBCU in the country selected for this honor.

Beginning in January 2020, Files-Thompson will teach and research at the University of the West Indies Mona and Western Jamaica campuses as part of the participatory action project “Race, Culture, Sustainability and New Media: Implications for Applied Digital Communication and the Informal and Sharing Tourism Economies in Jamaica.”

“This Fulbright is especially significant because it will allow me to teach, learn, and grow in a country that I have come to love and consider my second home,” said Files-Thompson, who is chairwoman of the Department of Mass Communications. “I know personally that tourism can represent a site of empowerment and cultural awareness, and so, being able to continue to study the impact of tourism from an African diasporic perspective is incredibly gratifying.”
Files-Thompson said she will use the Fulbright to build upon efforts started last year to open up pathways for Lincoln students to engage the African Diaspora. In summer 2018, she took 18 Lincoln students to Jamaica on a faculty-led study abroad.

Stephen A. Smith and First Take live from Fieldhouse

ESPN’s popular sports debate show First Take, with Stephen A. Smith, Max Kellerman and host Molly Qerim Rose, will be live from 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington, Delaware on Friday, Sept. 20, as part of Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week.

First Take will air from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on ESPN with guests Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Magic Johnson — along with performances by HBCU marching bands, the Delaware State Drumline and a step show. The event is free and open to the public with doors opening at 7 a.m. and will include giveaways and a live DJ.

“I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the education and experience I had at an HBCU,” said Smith, a graduate of Winston-Salem State University who was named the HBCU Week Ambassador by the city of Wilmington in June, in a statement. “I can’t wait to take First Take on the road to Wilmington and meet all the potential students at the College Fair.”

HBCU College Fair is open to all high school aged students and a senior high school student can engage in an, “on the spot acceptance process,” whereby, if the student attends with a copy of the requisite SAT/ACT score and transcript, they could be admitted into college on the spot and offered a scholarship award. In the two years of the College Fair, more than 1,000 students have been admitted to HBCUs and many have received full and partial scholarships. The week culminates with the Battle of the Bands from colleges and universities around the East Coast.

Dr. Martin Kilson ’53 to receive an honorary degree
 
Lincoln University, Pa. – U.S. Rep. John R. Lewis, a prominent civil rights leader and representative of Georgia’s 5th congressional district, will speak at Lincoln University’s 160th Commencement ceremony Sunday, May 5.

“John Lewis’s legacy as a civil rights leader and legislator aligns with the values and mission of Lincoln University, which is to educate and empower students to lead their communities and change the world,” said Lincoln University President Brenda A. Allen. “It is our hope that graduates and those in attendance at the ceremony will be inspired by the heartening words of Congressman Lewis.

Lewis assumed office January 3, 1987, and has been serving Georgia’s 5th District in the United States House of Representatives for the past 30 years.

He is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and is the chair of the Subcommittee on Oversight. Rep. Lewis is the senior chief deputy democratic whip and is often referred to as the “conscience” of the United States Congress.

Born in 1940 to sharecroppers in Troy, Alabama, Lewis was raised during the era of Jim Crow law — a series of laws that enforced racial segregation in the South. After being Inspired by the Montgomery Bus Boycott and words of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Lewis joined the civil rights movement.

During his time as a student at Fisk University, Lewis organized sit-in lunch demonstrations, and in 1961 joined the infamous Freedom Riders, who protested segregation by occupying bus seats reserved for whites. Bus riders were routinely attacked by violent mobs, leading to Lewis being arrested and beaten.

Lewis also served as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and was one of the leaders who organized the 1963 March on Washington, where he gave a keynote address. A year later he participated in voter registration drives in Mississippi and in 1965 joined other civil rights leaders and led more than 600 marchers in Selma, Alabama. Lewis and the marchers were met with violent protest from police. The march received national attention and is credited with influencing the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Throughout his efforts during the Civil Rights Movement, Lewis sustained arrests, imprisonments, and beatings that lead to severe injuries.

Before being elected to Congress, Lewis served in the Carter administration, leading a federal volunteer organization, and later served as a member of the Atlanta City Council.
Lewis is the author of numerous books and has received a National Book Award for his trilogy MARCH. He is also the recipient of numerous awards including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Lincoln Medal, and the Gleitsman Citizen Activist Award from the Harvard Kennedy School among others.

Kilson to be awarded an honorary degree

Dr. Martin L. Kilson, Jr. ’53, a Harvard University professor emeritus, will receive an honorary degree at Lincoln’s commencement ceremony. In 1969, Kilson became the first African American scholar to receive a full professorship at Harvard College.

Kilson was born on February 14, 1931, in East Rutherford, New Jersey to Reverend Martin Kilson and Louisa Kilson. After his family’s move to Ambler, Pennsylvania, Kilson attended Ambler High School, where he graduated as an honor student in 1948.

In 1953, Kilson graduated from Lincoln University at the top of his class with a bachelor’s degree in political science. After graduation, Kilson continued his education and earned a John Hay Whitney Fellowship to study at Harvard University where he earned a Ph.D. in Political Science.

After completing his doctorate degree, Kilson earned a Ford Foundation Fellowship and conducted field research in West Africa. Kilson then returned to Harvard as a research associate in the Center for International Affairs and was appointed a lecturer in Harvard’s Department of Government in 1962. Shortly after, he published his first book titled Political Change in a West African State: A Study of the Modernization Process in Sierra Leone.
During his tenure at Harvard, he wrote over 100 journal articles and co-authored several books that addressed effective political leadership and socio-economic issues for African Americans and emerging countries in Africa.

In 1975, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship and was instrumental in the development of African American studies both as an academic discipline and as a department at Harvard University.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. – In December, Lincoln University welcomed senior administrative leaders from Princeton University to Lincoln’s main campus to discuss expanding the ongoing relationship between the two universities.

At the onset of Princeton’s daylong visit to campus, members from Princeton’s graduate school and provost’s office were greeted by President Brenda A. Allen and Provost Patricia Ramsey.
Their discussions included exploring opportunities for student research and internship programs for students on both campuses.

Throughout the day, the group met with Lincoln faculty members and department chairs to discuss how both universities could collaborate on faculty development, research, and faculty engagement.

The strengthening of ties between Lincoln and Princeton advances Lincoln’s new strategic plan, which calls for partnerships that enhance the education and professional development of students.

Lincoln’s relationship with Princeton dates back to the early years of the 19th century when Lincoln was colloquially known as the “Black Princeton” because of its Princeton-educated faculty, as noted in Wayne J. Urban’s biographical novel “Black Scholar: Horace Mann Bond, 1904-1972.”

In October, faculty and students from the Department of Mathematical Sciences, hosted Dr. David Gabai, chair of the Department of Mathematics at Princeton, to discuss synergies between the two math departments. During his visit to Lincoln, Gabai gave a presentation to the math department on topology and knot theory before discussing research occurring in his undergraduate and graduate courses.

In July, members of the Lincoln community traveled to the Princeton University Library to launch a new archival research program. The program, Archives, Research, and Collaborative History, also known as ARCH, was launched alongside five HBCUs from around the country.

A new report issued by the Maryland Office of Legislative Audit says that a lack of internal controls and executive oversight at Morgan State University resulted in millions in vendor payments for services not rendered, unclaimed federal student financial aid funds and scholarships awarded to ineligible students between 2013 and 2017.

The report outlines 17 total findings against the university, which also says that the university failed to properly administer receivables from grants, and to protect student data in electronic systems.
