Meet Dr. Marybeth Gasman, the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Endowed Chair and a Distinguished University Professor at Rutgers University, and Dr. Levon T. Esters, dean of the graduate school and vice provost for graduate education at Penn State University. They co-authored HBCU: The Power of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, published by Johns Hopkins Press.
In this episode, Gasman and Esters join Diverse to discuss their newly released book chronicling the impact of HBCUs.
Tune in as authors Gasman, Esters, and host Dr. Jamal Watson delve into the rich history, personal anecdotes, and enduring impact of HBCUs. Join an empowering conversation of distinctive cultures and identities cultivated within HBCUs that underscores the crucial role of philanthropy and alumni engagement toward sustaining the institutions.
"Sometimes people will talk about HBCUs in derogatory ways. This book gives you all the evidence to be able to talk about HBCUs in incredibly positive ways." – Dr. Marybeth Gasman
“These institutions are of extreme value to our society… For me, being able to be part of this writing experience, being able to learn from those we interviewed and see my experience reflected into those — those interviews were powerful.” – Dr. Levon T. Esters
