The Mission of the HBCU Legacy Foundation is to restore and preserve the Legacy of Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by commemorating these institutions with a monument on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
Our vision is to advance the legacy of HBCUs and their imprint on educational equity by acknowledging, celebrating and championing the institutions themselves, the talent they produce, and their many contributions toward this nation’s industries, communities, and humanity as a whole.
Meet Our President & Founder
We at the Foundation are committed to making present and future generations aware of the HISTORY of (Sub-Saharan) African Americans. A history that is not being, nor, has ever been, adequately recorded, and/or taught in the history of this nation. Which makes it absolutely mandatory that we recognize that the minute parts that have been taught and/or memorialized are at risk of being changed, dismantled, and completely abolished from the public square and the pages of history AND, we, as a people, are complicit in the abolishment of this rich history. Therefore, it is imperative, an absolute necessity, that we join together in the restoration and preservation of the legacy of these great institutions that catapulted us out of the dark days of slavery and sustained us through the long and arduous "Jim Crow" days to a position to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps and started us on this journey to fulfill the dreams of our forefathers.
