Paul Quinn forum on strengthening black colleges

The Obama administration’s primary advocate for historically black colleges is slated to speak and listen at a town hall meeting at Paul Quinn College.

DALLAS (AP) — The Obama administration’s primary advocate for historically black colleges is slated to speak and listen at a town hall meeting at Paul Quinn College. John Silvanus Wilson Jr., executive director of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, was scheduled to attend Wednesday night’s forum in Dallas on ways to revitalize and preserve historically black schools. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 2009 revoked the accreditation of Paul Quinn, which is the oldest historically black college in Texas. The school went to federal court and blocked the move. The case is pending. Wilson was appointed by President Barack Obama in July 2009. Copyright 2010 The Associated Press.
