Compared to their predominantly white counterparts, the nation’s Black land-grant universities have been underfunded by at least $12.8 billion over the last three decades. Many are in dire financial straits—and living under a cloud of violence.

"Today, I'm recommending a $250 million dollar investment to improve the physical infrastructure at TSU."

An HBCU President Desperately Tried to Derail the Maryland HBCU Lawsuit. Fortunately, He Failed.

-HBCU Digest

Quote
There are so many other men and women who played an instrumental role in helping to lead this landmark case to a favorable outcome, even when conditions appeared to be unfavorable towards their cause at every turn of appeals and failed negotiations.

Sometimes, the opposition to their success came from within the HBCU community. Three of Maryland’s four HBCU presidents retired or resigned from their posts in the midst of the lawsuit and the negotiations that followed the 2013 verdict, creating some difficulty in aligning the campus with the plaintiffs’ objectives.

The one president who stayed, Morgan State’s David Wilson, was a public and ardent opponent of the lawsuit from the beginning.

Yes, the URL says, "David Wilson is a Chump."

The Makur Maker experiment at Howard was never going to work - it's already off to a bad start



When Makur Maker, a five-star recruit and projected NBA Draft pick, announced that he was going to play college basketball this season at Howard University — an HBCU — people said a power shift was on the horizon, especially given the racial and social uprisings that have taken place in 2020.

ESPN called the move a game-changer.

Well, a game-changer it has not been.

This quote essentially sums up the article:

If Maker truly wanted to play basketball at a high level and enjoy the HBCU experience, then Howard wasn’t the place to go. The answer was North Carolina Central University.

Before breaking bread at last year’s CoSIDA convention, a colleague posed a question to Eric Moore.

“What about the future?” they inquired. “What’s next for ONNIDAN? Do you have an exit strategy?”

Moore: “To be honest, I don’t. I’ve never had those long-term plans so I really don’t know.”

General Discussion Forum / My Sister and Nephew need help.
« on: September 13, 2018, 01:14:21 PM »
Hey Onnidan,

My sister needs help. Back in April, she was assaulted and suffered a spinal cord injury. This occurred just a month after giving birth.

My family’s been supportive but it isn’t enough.

So if you could, please donate to her Go Fund Me. She’s looking to raise $50,000 to help modify her home for her wheelchair, pay for therapy to learn how to walk again and help take care of her son.

Thanks, and Aggie Pride!
