    But Horton Vint with his great mustache - ah, there's a man who would be a real catch. Being a young black man, we often look towards older black women, especially the ones we look up to in such powerful positions as strong and unyielding. Block by block, road by road, building by building, they constructed carefully managed urban institutions whose economic and political power endures to this day.

    As desegregators and racial pioneers, black students, staff, and faculty used their status in the black intelligentsia to enhance their predominantly white institutions while advancing black freedom.

It is events like these that will birth the next generation of black female leaders in academia. Black students and educators daringly decolonized curricula and space on their elite campuses.
