February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate the achievements of Black Americans and honor their legacy and contributions across U.S. history and society.
Dr. Theresa Price, founder of the National College Resources Foundation, will virtually visit BSP this month to discuss her foundation and the importance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. BSP Associate Chelsea Robinson, who attended Thurgood Marshall School of Law and Dillard University, will also participate in the conversation about HBCUs.
The National College Resources Foundation’s mission is to curtail the high school dropout rate and increase degree and/or certificate enrollment among underserved, underrepresented, at risk, low resource, homeless, and foster students. Their vision is to close the gap in educational achievement, workforce, and economic disparities with the goal to end racism and racial inequality. They host many events and programs including college expos, careers expos, the Movement Enrichment Program, the Student Athlete Program, and much more. To learn more about NCRF, click here.
