LOC!💜💛✊🏾 LeMoyne-Owen College

LeMoyne-Owen College is a private, historically black, four year, co-educational, liberal arts institution located in Memphis, Tennessee. It is affiliated with the United Church of Christ. The institution can trace its roots back to 1862, when the American Missionary Association (AMA) sent Lucinda Humphrey to Camp Shiloh to open an elementary school for freedmen and runaway slaves shortly after federal troops, commanded by Ulysses S. Grant, occupied West Tennessee. In 1863, the school then known as Lincoln Chapel, was moved to Memphis, but was destroyed by fire in 1866 during the anti-black race riots following the withdrawal of federal troops.

Lincoln Chapel was rebuilt in 1867 and reopened with 6 teachers and 150 students. After 3 difficult years during which the school experienced financial difficulties, Dr. Francis J. LeMoyne, a Pennsylvania physician and abolitionist, donated $20,000 to the AMA to build an elementary and secondary school for prospective teachers. The AMA allocated the money for Lincoln Chapel which was renamed LeMoyne Normal and Commercial School in 1871. LeMoyne visited the school in 1871 where he personally donated the clock for the institution’s clock tower. In 1914 the school moved from Orleans Street in Memphis to its present location on Walker Avenue.

LeMoyne became a junior college in 1924, a four-year college in 1930, and was chartered by the State of Tennessee in 1934. Planning for Owen College was begun in 1947 by the Tennessee Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention, and the school was opened as S.A. Owen Junior College in 1954. In 1968 the two schools merged to become LeMoyne-Owen College.

Today LeMoyne-Owen College occupies a 15 acre campus in Memphis. Recent statistics show the school’s enrollment to be around 700 students from 15 states and 5 foreign countries. LeMoyne-Owen is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and is a charter member of the United Negro College Fund. LeMoyne-Owen offers bachelor of arts, bachelor of business administration, and bachelor of science degrees in 22 majors.

Rust College! 💙✊🏾

Rust College was founded in 1866 by the Freeman’s Aid Society’s missionaries of the Methodist Episcopal Church with the goal of providing basic education for adults and children who had formerly been enslaved. Located outside Holly Springs, Mississippi, the College is currently affiliated with the United Methodist Church. It is a historically black college and is the second-oldest private college in the state of Mississippi. Rust College is a four-year, co-educational, liberal arts institution, and is one of only five historically black colleges in the United States that were founded before 1867 and are still in operation.

When Rust College opened, instruction was given to adults and children on elementary subjects. The first campus buildings were erected in 1867. In 1870, the school was chartered as Shaw University, honoring Reverend S.O. Shaw, who donated $10, 000 to the new institution. In 1915 the institution changed its name to Rust University in honor of the Secretary of the Freeman’s Aid Society, Richard S. Rust.

As the number of students increased, Rust College added high school and collegiate courses to its curriculum. When public schools for African Americans in northern Mississippi increased, the College discontinued its grade school in the 1930s, and its high school in 1953. Today, Rust College is regionally accredited as a higher education institution by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and offers various Associate and Bachelor’s degrees. Situated on 126 acres, the college currently has a diverse student body of 942 undergraduates, and has an endowment of approximately $23.7 million.

Rust College continues its mission of providing impoverished but academically talented students access to higher education. Instilling cultural, moral, and spiritual values, while offering instruction in the humanities, social behavioral sciences, natural science, business, technology, and education, the college dedicates itself to serving and preparing its students in becoming contributing members of society.

Lane College ♥️💙✊🏾

Lane College is a co-ed, liberal arts college located in Jackson, Tennessee. The college was founded in 1882 by Bishop Isaac Lane, a former slave and bishop of the Colored Methodist Episcopal (CME) Church. Lane College is the first institution established by the Methodist Episcopal Church and one of the oldest historically black colleges.

The idea of Lane College came in 1878 when Reverend J.K. Daniels presented a resolution to establish a school at the Tennessee Annual Conference of the CME Church held in the Capers Chapel C.M.E. Church in Nashville. The school originally opened in November 1882 as the C.M.E. High School with Jennifer Lane, daughter of Bishop Lane, as its first teacher. On June 22, 1884, the school changed its name to the Lane Institute after it was chartered under the laws of the State of Tennessee, and expanded its curriculum to focus on preparing ministers and teachers. In 1887, the first class graduated from Lane Institute. That year also saw the appointment of Reverend T.F. Saunders as the school’s first president.

In 1896, Lane Institute developed a College Department and broadened its curriculum by including courses in the classics, natural and physical sciences, as well as in mathematics. The Board of Trustees also decided to change the name of the institution to Lane College to better reflect the growth of the curriculum. In 1907, James Franklin Lane, the son of Bishop Lane was elected as president of the institution. Under the tenure of President Lane, the college improved its facilities and attracted the attention of various philanthropic organizations. Lane College was approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in 1936 and gained full membership in 1961.

Lane College’s enrollment now stands at slightly over 1,800. The college offers undergraduate programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree. The number of males enrolled at the institution has begun to outnumber the number of female students at the school, making it one of the few institutions in the entire nation with this enrollment trend.

MSCS RAM Presents: A Conversation with Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover- President of Tennessee Stare University

Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) were established to serve the educational needs of Black Americans. Prior to the time of their establishment, and for many years afterward, blacks were generally denied admission to traditionally white institutions. As a result, HBCUs became the principle means for providing postsecondary education to Black Americans.

MSCS RAM Dept. Sat down to have an intimate conversation with Dr. Glenda Baskin- Glover, Native Memphian and The President of Tennessee State University & Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, to discuss the relevance and importance of HBCUs!!
