Event Description:
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recently described historically black colleges and universities as “pioneers” of the school choice movement, with HBCU leaders from across the United States meeting with President Trump. How do we contextualize these developments? What is at stake for the historic struggle of Black Americans for citizenship and social justice?

Cally Waite, Associate Professor of History and Education, Columbia University, serves as the National Director of the Mellon Mays Graduate Initiatives Program, and as Social Science Research Council Director.

Waite’s publications include: Permission to Remain Among Us: Education for Blacks in Oberlin, 1880-1914; The Invisible ‘Talented Tenth, Women and Dubois; and Fighting Injustice Through Education.
