tallahassee famu insensitivity

Dear editor,I am the mother of a sophomore history major at your institution. Since nothing really surprises me anymore, I still, however, face disappointment when I see blatant or subtle injustice directed towards HBCU’s. When I searched on line to reserve a hotel room to accomodate me and my husband once we arrive to your city so that we can rest up before we assist our daughter move into her apartment in May, I found at none of the web hotel sites any references to FAMU as a “place of interest” or site to see. Needless to say, FAMU, according to “THEM,” is not even on the map or worth acknowledging. It is my hope that your institution and civic-minded leaders have already addressed such deliberate oversights and will attempt to put such a viable piece of Floridian and national history alongside FSU who is acknowledged in Tallahassee.
