Dr. Kent Smith: Historically Black Colleges and Universities Link to Trump Through HBCU Alums on Senior Staff

Dr. Kent Smith, President of Langston University spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday regarding President Trump’s Executive Order regarding Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

See story here for more details: “President Donald Trump has signed an executive order in support of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Many university presidents were in Washington to discuss the needs of HBCUs, including Oklahoma’s president of Langston University, Dr. Kent Smith.”

Said Smith today, “One of the most significant pieces of his executive order that has not gotten much traction yet but that we think is significant is the fact that he is relocating the director of the historically Black college White House initiative from basically being a report through the Secretary of Education and turning it to be a report through the White House.”

Langston also told Marlow today, “One of the significant factors is that President Trump has a few of his executive staff members who are graduates of historically black colleges and universities, which as a result allows them to advocate for HBCUs. And it gives him an insight into really what’s happening.”

Langston made the point that HBCUs have “contributed significantly” to the Black middle-class and represent over 370,000 college students.
