Morgan State University alumni gathered at Boeing Headquarters in Arlington, Va. on Nov. 13 to celebrate 75 years of service to their institution. The group hosted historically Black college and university (HBCU) presidents from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), Tennessee State University (TSU) and Morgan State University (MSU) to engage in a panel discussion surrounding the day’s theme of “Reimagining HBCUs Beyond 2024.”
Prominent guests such as Elaine Blackwell, the longest D.C. Metro Alumni Chapter member, Kysha Hancock, former Miss MSU and Bobby Scott (D-Va.-3), Virginia state senator were in attendance. The keynote speaker was Dietra Trent, who serves as the executive director of the White House Initiative on Advancing Equity, Excellence and Economic Opportunity through Historically Black Colleges and Universities, more commonly known as the White House HBCU Initiative.
