HBCU Made & Pretty Paid: A Salute To Education 
 
12 HBCU Female bosses
   There are several great reasons to attend a Historically Black College or University. They’re competitive institutions with long histories of academic excellence, societal impact and influential alumni, such as our very own Vice President Kamala Harris! Surveys also show Black students feel their time at HBCUs better prepares them for life than Black students who go to predominantly white institutions. 
Though there are so many amazing female bosses who are products of HBCU that we wish we could give flowers to, we wanted to highlight 12 that are doing awesome things. Check them out below:

 

Regan Farley, Co-Founder Intel Media Group
“HBCUs have laid the foundation of educating Black professionals for centuries. My HBCU has taught me to think deeply and critically, but beyond anything else, it has empowered me to believe that I can be any and everything that I want to be.”  
HBCU- Lincoln University of Pennsylvania

Jacque Reid, Journalist/ Podcast Co-Host
"HBCU's provide much more than an education for black students."
