Dear HBCUs


Homecoming is not only a time to revisit where we’ve been, but also celebrate how far we’ve come! Historically Black Colleges and Universities have helped to shape and define the future of so many. We gave recent alumni a chance to show their love and appreciation for their alma maters with more HBCU Love Letters. This homecoming season, as we listen to their stories, let’s celebrate the work of HBCUs and the lives they uplift!
