WE REWARD HBCU ALUMNI WHO FIGHT FOR WHAT'S RIGHT
Every two years, Rdevia will accept nominations for HBCU Graduates who deserve to win an #HBCUteenth Award. All nominees must work or volunteer to solve issues related to Education Access, Racial Equity, or Social Justice.
Join us on June 19, 2022 for a Freedom Discussion featuring our 2021 HBCUteenth Winners that will be aired lived on our Rdevia Facebook Page.
On June 19, 1865, word reached Galveston, TX that slavery had been outlawed. Today, this day is celebrated as Juneteenth and HBCUs should be especially proud. Though it unfortunately took more than two years for freedom to reach Texas, the word was definitely getting out and it all started at an HBCU.
One day in 1863, the year President Lincoln signed it into law, the first Southern reading of the Emancipation Proclamation happened under an oak tree near today's Hampton University. That oak tree is known today as Emancipation Oak.
