Date:
1996 February 1-3
Scope and Contents:
The conference was cosponsored by the National Association for the Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, The Office for the Advancement for Public Black Colleges, The College Fund/UNCF, the Anacostia Museum and the Center for African American History and Culture. Funding for the program was made possible in part by a grant from Nissan Motor Corporation, USA.

Mind on Freedon was inspired by research done by Spencer Crew, then Museum director, and Lonnie G. Bunch, then associate director for the National Museum of American History's research, documentation, exhibition and collection project Go Forth and Serve. The conference was designed to examine the relationship African Americans have had with education in the United States, the historical evolution of Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and the importance of these institutions on the life and culture of this nation. The program was held from Thursday, February 1, through Saturday, February 3, 1996, and it included panel discussions and performances.
