HBCUSTORY on “Living Your Best Life” Radio

cadegregoryOn Saturday, March 30, 2013, founding editor of HBCUSTORY, Inc., Dr. Crystal deGregory shared her vision for the Inaugural HBCUSTORY Symposium at the Nashville Public Library on April 27, 2013 with Genma Holmes’ Living Your Best Life Radio.

In addition to sharing her passion for chronicling the history, the struggles, the challenges, and the beauty of the nation’s Historically Black Universities and Colleges, deGregory addresses the traditional roles of HBCUs as well as the relevancy of HBCUs as they adapt to the changing demographics of our country and financial challenges.

Discussing the culture of academia, young academicians need for mentoring, and why HBCU institutions must get better at telling their story beyond the HBCU community, she explores how her dream is now reality with the support of the Nashville Public Library and why the HBCUSTORY Symposium will be a safe environment to exchange ideas and share concerns that will collect “Inspiring Stories of the Past and Present, For Our Future.”

Listen here to the interview that’s taking the HBCU community by storm!
