The Black McDonald’s Operators of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (BMOA), in partnership with Operation PUSH’s Rainbow-PUSH Coalition, PUSH for Excellence and other sponsors, recently helped send more than 100 Chicago-area high school students on a rare spring break bus tour of 16 Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  The 12th annual “Historically Black Colleges and Universities Bus Tour” enabled the students to experience first-hand the legacy, heritage and educational opportunity found at these important institutions.  The visits, which included interaction with current college students and campus recruitment counselors, featured some of the nation’s premiere African American institutions of higher learning, among them: Tuskegee University, Fisk University, Morehouse College, Spelman College, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Talladega College, Tennessee State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Claflin College, South Carolina State University, Howard University, Morgan State University, Bennett College, Winston-Salem State University, Florida A&M University and Clark Atlanta University.
