To HBCU or Not to HBCU - That is the Question

Listen as two members of my tribe talk about their college experience - one who attended a PWI (Predominantly White Institution) and on who attended an HBCU (Historically Black College or University).

How did they decide where they wanted to go, what were their experiences like, are there misconceptions about HBCUs that sometimes impact decisions? And if they had to do it all over again, would they make the same college choice?

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
