Today, we go back in time to 1869, the date when Howard University School of Law (HUSL) was founded. This is an important fact in the history of African Americans because it marks the creation of the first law school intended for black people. It is also important to me; Howard University School of Law will forever hold a special place in my heart because it is my alma mater and the place where I met my husband. Today’s prompt asks you to compare the changes in the way HUSL carried out its objectives between 1869 and 2013.
