    Impressive this says a lot about the quality of education at HBCUs. Having attended both white universities & black universities, I've always said that the level of instruction and expectation was more difficult at HBCUs. I'm not surprised at Howard's victory.

    Okay Family-

    Now HOW bad are our HBCU's?

    We make things happen don't we?

    We are INNOVATORS NOT DUPLICATORS!

    Wow,wow, my neice and her husband graduated from Howard Law. My neice past the bar, in three states on her first try, her Harvard and Princeton conterparts took several tests to pass. Needless to say, I am greatful to Howard. My son graduated from there, he loved it. Haille Gerima is there, he wrote and directed "Sankofa". Dr. Frances Cress Wesling was a professor there and the list goes on. Anybody who is anybody passes through Howard. I am not suprised of their success.
