Get Ready for the Ride of Your Life, as The ABCs of HBCUs Takes Readers on a Front-Row, All-Inclusive Tour of Historically Black Colleges & Universities

From FAMU to Howard, the Divine Nine to Battle of the Bands, children learn about the love, lifestyles, and legacies that built these incredible institutions.

PR Newswire

OAKLAND, Calif., April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- New children's book celebrates Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

 

Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Toni Morrison, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. all attended Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs.) Unfortunately, many children are unaware of these institutions. "The ABCs of HBCUs," written by Claudia Walker and published by HBCU Prep School, is raising awareness about Black Colleges.

From A to Z, "The ABCs of HBCUs" gives readers a front-row, all-inclusive tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. It is the first children's book to introduce young readers to college campuses like Howard University, Spelman College, Lincoln University and Meharry Medical College.

Readers also learn about time-honored traditions such as the Battle of the Bands, homecoming, and Black fraternities and sororities.

In a recent interview, Walker said, "As a teacher, I know that some students only learn about HBCUs during their senior year of high school, if at all. I want to change that, and ensure that students are exposed to these historical institutions as early as possible."

Award-winning brand-designer Jessica E. Boyd provided the illustrations for the book. Boyd, a double HBCU alumna, captured and translated the essence of the Black college experience into a language that speaks to young children.

This is a debut book release for Walker and Boyd.
