HBCU MADE A Celebration of the Black College Experience

by | Read by Ayesha Rascoe, Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, Brandon Gilpin, Nichole Perkins, April Ryan, Karen Chilton, Adam Lazarre-White

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are celebrated in this moving, inspirational audiobook. Karen Chilton, Adam Lazarre-White, and original contributors, including author Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, narrate passages about what brought individual students to HBCUs and how their lives were changed. The result is a seamless listening experience. Contributors consistently point out that the HBCU environment provides a space to be challenged and focus on development without the burden of being "other," as is the case at predominantly white universities. Among the recurring themes is the embrace of cultural curriculum. For example, one student learned history through Max Roach and John Coltrane, rather than studying only Eurocentric texts. As one contributor notes, the HBCU environment is a place where faculty "love you to success." S.P.C. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
