One response to “Leaving Home: An HBCU Interview: Finding Our Identity”

  1. Derek, What kind college fosters a behavior of ignorance and bigotry within its own race…. only an HBCU. I went to one so I know, and I am sorry that were ever treated that way. You are a handsome guy and speaking correct English should not incite ridicule. I admire your strength and perseverance, but perhaps going to this HBCU was not the best choice for you.
