The HBCU - Past, Present & Future

Teacher Page


This web quest was designed to accompany lessons for the 2016 AT & T African-American calendar honoree for December - Elizabeth "Lizzie" Wright.  Lizzie Wright is the founder of Voorhees College in Denmark, South Carolina.  Voorhees College is one of eight historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in South Carolina and is the central focus of this web quest.  I greatly encourage any teacher, student and parent that is interested in South Carolina African-American history to view other resources at http://scafricanamerican.com/resources/.
