HBCUs Take Center Stage at CBC

Washington, D.C. (Wednesday, September 11, 2019) – WHUR is keeping you informed and connected to the important issues and discussions taking place this week at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference.  We held a special CBC edition of the Daily Drum from 3rd Annual National HBCU Braintrust.  Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle along with HBCU Presidents, students, business leaders, and others gathered with WHUR’s Harold Fisher for the discussion to talk about the triumphs, challenges, and how to expand the national platform of historically black colleges and universities.
