A comprehensive and definitive guide to America's 107 historically black colleges and universities, this commemorative gift book explores the historical, social, and cultural importance of the nation's HBCUs and celebrates their rich legacy.

Included in this one-of-a-kind collection are:

  • Detailed profiles of each HBCU
  • Illuminating portraits of distinguished HBCU graduates such as Leontyne Price, Thurgood Marshall, Spike Lee, and Oprah Winfrey
  • Little-known anecdotes about pre-Civil War efforts to educate blacks, such as how a white pastor founded what became Lincoln University after his black protégé was excluded from Princeton's Theological Seminary
  • Rare photographs and archival materials featuring the likes of Eleanor Roosevelt addressing students at Howard University

Chronicling the history of education in the African American community, I'll Find a Way or Make One is not only an unprecedented salute to historically black colleges and universities, but also an indispensable account of some of the most important events of African Americana and American history.

“An important resource.”
