College fairs provide a great opportunity for prospective students to see what university works best for them. For Black students, an HBCU college fair is the perfect place to see all the Historically Black Colleges and Universities in one place.
That’s why Google Cloud is partnering with the Alfred Street Baptist Church Foundation to offer the largest free virtual HBCU college fair in the nation, according to a press release.
“We are proud to sponsor the ASBC Foundation HBCU Festival which includes many of our HBCU customers of Google Workspace,” said Steven Butschi, head of Education for Google Cloud, in the press release statement. “We are always honored to assist HBCUs in solving challenges through our technology solutions, or by facilitating the recruitment of our country’s finest students for these outstanding colleges and universities.”
Google, certainly, has come under fire in recent weeks in the wake of their recent racism allegations. Fortunately, it seems that they’re taking the first, necessary steps toward accountability.
The Alfred Street Baptist Church has a long and storied history in Black America. Established in 1803, Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) will celebrate its 218th anniversary in November and is home to one of the oldest African American congregations in the nation. Their virtual HBCU college fair is just another example of their long and continued service to the Black community at large.
