HBCU Closing: Atlanta's Morris Brown on Last Leg

Comments

Morris Brown College, a historically Black university in Atlanta, will more
than likely not reopen its doors next month for spring semester, according
to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. After continued financial problems for
the last few years, the 127-year-old institution has no funds left to pay
faculty and staff salaries. The school is sinking in $380,000 of unpaid water bills, along with a hefty debt of $1.5 million dollars, following embezzlement and other alleged crimes by former administrators. The city has cut off water to the college.
