COMMUNITY & UNIVERSITY NEWS
Now open at The Legacy Museum, Tuskegee University, "The Gathering." An exhibit commemorating the 125th Anniversary of the Second Morrill Act, signed August 20, 1890. The 1890 Land-Grant Institutions in the United States are planning a series of events, activities and programs to showcase, highlight and market the accomplishments and impacts of the 1890 system. The Legacy Museum is interpreting Tuskegee University's unique responses to the Land-Grant Act of 1890 in the form of the exhibition entitled "The Gathering". In "The Gathering", it is explained how Tuskegee University was found eligible to receive Land-Grant support because of its historical involvement in agricultural activities, yet it was not founded nor designated as Land-Grant under the Second Morrill Act legislation.
Please keep the members of the Armed Forces in your prayers, especially our own Deon Carter, Christopher Childers, Kyle F. Graham, and Jabar and Kenya Lee Steward.
Please continue to furnish our Food Basket with nonperishable items.
