No History Majors at Historical Black University Founded by Black American Civil War Veterans

From Campus Reform:

Originally founded as the Lincoln Institute in 1866 by black Civil War veterans of the 62nd and 65th U.S. Colored Infantry regiments, Lincoln University was among the first of what are now known as historically black colleges and universities (HBCU), and is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.

Lincoln University’s Board of Curators voted 4-2 in a special session this week to “deactivate” its history program for both the bachelor of arts and bachelor of science tracks, according to Inside Higher Ed. The disbandment will last three years, at which point the program will be reviewed to decide if it will be restructured or eliminated altogether.

    Sounds like a good idea. Why bother with embarrassing facts when made-up history of events such as “hands up, don’t shoot” demonstrated beyond any doubt progressive liberals, racists of any color and those suffering from minds damaged by political correctness are incapable of comprehending them.

    The old adage of “if you don’t learn from history, you are bound to repeat it” also comes into play.
