What do Oprah Winfrey, Kamala Harris, Spike Lee, and Toni Morrison have in common? Besides being trailblazers in their respective fields, they are all graduates of HBCUs.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), established in the United States before 1964, have produced a wealth of leadership and service in our communities. Diverse leaders from throughout the Diaspora, such as Tom Joyner, Stacey Abrams, and Keisha Lance Bottoms, join the ranks of thousands of HBCU graduates who make a difference in enriching the lives of citizens nationwide (and abroad).
The Southern Area of The Links, Incorporated urges you to join them on today – Giving Tuesday – for their HBCU Capital Campaign to support the philosophy, core values, and ethics of community service benefitting HBCUs. With 57 of these institutions in the organization’s core focus area, your tax-deductible campaign donation will enable these viable educational creators to keep empowering its graduates to transform the landscape of America.
