[Black History] A Brief History of Tennessee State University

Tennessee State University is a comprehensive urban coeducational land-grant university founded in 1912 in Nashville, Tenn. The 500-acre main campus, with more than 65 buildings, is located in a residential setting; the Avon Williams Campus is located downtown, near the center of the Nashville business and government district.

Through successive stages, TSU has developed from a normal school for Negroes to its current status as a national university with students from 42 states and 45 countries. The present-day Tennessee State University exists as a result of the merger on July 1, 1979, of Tennessee State University and the former University of Tennessee at Nashville.

Coming into this game Florida A & M had just come off of a monstrous win over Howard University just last week (50 – 7), to top that off, FAMU Alum and Celebrity Movie Producer Will Packer flipped the coin to welcome Tennessee State to Atlanta. TSU won the toss and commanded the speed of the game as they scored on their initial drive (:23 seconds in). TSU continued this roll and pulled off a win (TSU:29 FAMU:18).
