“A black school? But you’re so smart, you could go anywhere.” That was the reaction I got when I told some high school friends that I would attend Spelman, a historically black women’s college in Atlanta. I know they thought they were complimenting me.
"The Value of a Black College" is from the April 01, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Skylar Mitchell and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
