HBCUs Develop Scholars Who Impact American Politics
Saint Augustine’s University (SAU) has undergone many changes since her birth in 1867, from normal school to school to junior college to 4-year college to university. One thing that remains constant, however, is SAU’s ability to produce great scholars with the drive to make a change. HBCUs are integral to the development of African Americans, this has become more evident in today’s political climate.
The Washington Post’s recent article titled “Historically Black colleges and universities are remaking American politics” details this relationship more. This article makes mention of SAU’s contribution to remaking American politics by way of the St. Agnes hospital and illustrious alumna Anna Julia Cooper.
