It looks like the financial saga surrounding Morris Brown College is about to come to an end.  The once illustrious Historical Black College and University is facing foreclosure according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The school has gone from its heyday of about 3000 students to only 50. 

Witnessing the demise of a school that was founded by former slaves in order to educate the children of slaves is very heartbreaking.

May the school should have taken Tom Joyner up on his offer to take over the school a few years ago.  Maybe he could have turned it around and this situation could have been avoided.  We will never know.

Let this serve as a reminder to you.  If you had the privilege of attending an HBCU (like I did), please make sure you send money back to your school.  It may seem like an inconvenience, but trust me, it's worth it.  If you want your institution to stay around for the next generation, you have to do your part.
