Maryland at


approximately 2:45 a.m. on Thursday, October 17, 2019, according to his congressional office. Cummings, who was a revered civil rights activist and staunch supporter of education, graduated

Universities in the U.S. were initially established to provide Blacks access and entry to institutions of higher education. Brown versus Board of Education and the Civil Rights Movement, in the 1950s and 1960s made historical gains to end segregation and demand that everyone regardless of race have access to quality education. Many states in the U.S. especially in Southern states denied Blacks


access to enter their educational institutions. Today HBCUs stand as a bastion of learning, research, pride, tradition and a unique cultural experience for people around the world. Students of any race, creed, color, socio-economic back ground can gain admission to the more than 100 HBCUs in the U.S. There are public and private HBCU institutions.

University alumni clad in crimson and gold, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors declared Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019, as “Dr. Lily D. McNair and Tuskegee University Day.”


The Board of Supervisors presented


McNair with a scroll commemorating her day of honor at its regularly scheduled meeting at the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration in Downtown Los Angeles. The document and specially proclaimed day celebrated the university’s impact on its students and the


Tuskegee University alumni, and apparently the graduating class of 2019 was dominated by students from Los Angeles,” Hahn said.


Along an honorific scroll, Hahn presented


McNair with a letter penned and signed by Tuskegee’s founding president, Booker T. Washington, on Oct. 17, 1910. Hahn’s father Kenneth, who served as a county supervisor for 40 years and is the namesake of the county’s governmental headquarters, acquired the letter, which he framed and hung in his office during his tenure with the county.


Fellow county supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas joined Hahn in touting the university’s noteworthy achievements — the nation’s only center for bioethics in health care and research of its kind included among
