Historic In History.

“On Monday, HRC Foundation will kick off “Hype ’08,” a nationwide program in partnership with more than 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The first forum, a first of its kind on an HBCU campus, is in partnership with the Bisexual Lesbian and Gay Organization of Students at Howard (BLAGOSAH), aims to engage students, faculty, staff, and community members on issues facing LGBT Americans. “Hype ‘08” will also link national issues such as hate crimes, anti-LGBT discrimination, and HIV/AIDS to problems students face on HBCU campuses.” [HRC]
