VUU lecture on interracial cooperation in HBCU origins
10/30/2015, 8:59 p.m.
What role did interracial cooperation play in the founding of historically black colleges and universities following the Civil War?
That’s the question Dr. Raymond Hylton will discuss at a public lecture at Virginia Union University from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30.
Dr. Hylton, a VUU professor of history and political science, will use the university’s history as a case study. He is the author of a history of the school that dates its founding to 1865, just after the end of the Civil War.
The program, one of a series, will be held in the L. Douglas Wilder Library & Learning Resource Center on the VUU campus on Lombardy Street.
