Spotlight on Historically Black Colleges and Universities at BCHS

Bethlehem Central High School students had the opportunity to learn more about Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) last week.

HBCUs were established in the United States before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to provide Black students a safe space to learn and build community. From their inception, HBCUs offered Black students access to undergraduate and graduate-level educational opportunities.

Bethlehem Central High School Counselor Darnell Douglas and Allan Gadsden, Coordinator of Inclusive Practices and School Climate, set up an information table highlighting HBCUs last week. Mr. Douglas and Mr. Gadsden were on hand to educate interested students on the significant history of HBCUs and to answer questions about programs, admissions and campus life.
