HBCU Calendar 2012

Since 2006, the Black History Educational Network has produced this spectacular annual calendar as a fundraising vehicle for the nation’s 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

So far, we’ve raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for HBCU schools with the calendar, which is sold in more than 2,300 locations nationwide!

Since 1837, HBCUs have produced some of our country’s most prominent African-American leaders. Yet, despite the important work they do, Historically Black Colleges and Universities have always faced daily financial struggles to remain open.

With the dual goal of raising funds for and awareness of HBCUs, and to document the historical achievements of outstanding African Americans, this special commemorative limited edition calendar was created.

The calendar:
Features 13 “notable” African-American history makers/celebrities on the cover and inside – one for each month (December through December).
Profiles 12 HBCUs by the chronological order in which they were established.
Provides Black history facts on important dates.
Highlights the Black Greek fraternities and sororities and other national African American organizations interested in education.
