Celebrating Historically Black Colleges and Universities
2001 African American History Calendar
Many of this nation's greatest African American thinkers and leaders were educated at historically black colleges and universities -- leaders such as visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., poet Langston Hughes, athlete Alice Coachman, and international celebrity Oprah Winfrey, among countless others. In 2001, Aetna recognized 12 of the more than 100 historically black colleges and universities. In the communities they serve these institutions are often beacons of social, economic and political growth. And for so many African American students, approximately 40,000 who graduate annually, they provide an educationally rich environment where dreams do come true.
