Scholars Long Before Colleges explores the potentiality of the future generation through education. For years, historically Black colleges and universities have been a platform for black-advancement and for young people of color to be served by an institution that caters to them. In today’s society, we are no where near a post-racial society, yet the “need” for black people to serve and help ourselves in spite of the systematic disparities between black people and our counter-parts, is questioned.
