About

History

On September 14, 1927, the Houston Public School Board agreed to fund the development of two junior colleges: one for whites and one for African-Americans.  And so, with a loan from the Houston Public School Board of $2,800, the Colored Junior College was born in the summer of 1927 under the supervision of the Houston School District.

My comeback
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was studying at Texas Southern University until my mother who was paying for my tuitions retired. After that it became hard for me to pay so I went back home and found a job. Now I'm ready to finish my bachelor's degree and even do a master's degree.
