There was so much more important info that was omitted. how uneven standards were to enter many hbcu's no entrance exams, no sat score to contend with even up until the late 1960's. that had to impact the intellectual life of students. how many prof.'s were properly credentialed [masters, doctorates required in subject matter being taught? perhaps someone else will properly complete the history of historic black colleges and universities.

Black College History At THis Pertinent Time

With Bennett College in Trouble, and so many others of our colleges have been lost, and we have such a rich history and this story is told quite well in this movie...Some of these stories are not commonly known, so it's good seeing these stories told.....Definitely check out this great movie...
