HBCU Making Moves
Our HBCU Making Moves Tour focuses on exposure to the rich legacy of the HBCUs and the unlimited opportunities an HBCU college education provides.
It all started in 1987, when Carl Ray put four boys on a plane, flew them into Atlanta, rented a van and took them to Tuskegee’s Homecoming. Since that one trip, over 5500 high school and community college students have attended the tours. Helping Carl on these tours always were his trusted friends Reginald Braddock, Brenda Long and John Wright, all four Tuskegee Institute Graduates. Sadly, Carl passed away in 2015. Today, Reggie, Brenda and myself continue where Carl left off. We have never stopped. We continue the work, the commitment, the duty, and the responsibility of the Tours because of the impact that it has upon the kids. We have had students (especially our young men) that have never dreamed of going to college, end up going to college, graduate and become very, very successful.
What Is Our HBCU Making Moves Tour About
Our HBCU Making Moves Tour focuses on exposing your child to the unlimited opportunities afforded them through a college education. The accomplishments range from (but are not limited to) the richness of cultures, histories, traditions, legacies, heritage, and pride. The student has a chance to meet and talk with Professors and student body who will support their endeavors to be successful.
Along with visits to numerous HBCU campuses, there are many cultural and historical sites that will be visited pertaining to African American Culture.
When your child returns from the Making Moves Tour, it is hoped that they will have gained a sense of pride in themselves inspiring them to greater strives. Making Moves is there for a continuance of lifeline support, guidance, and mentoring as your child will continue to be shadowed throughout high school and college graduation.
