Delaware State University Hosted The First TEDx Event At An HBCU
TEDxDover organizers and Delaware State University teamed up to host one the first ever citywide TEDx events held at a historically Black college or university (HBCU), with the mission of exposing students at these universities to the power of TED, according to WilmU’s Dan Young, who’s organizing the event.
“We are so excited to come to Delaware State University and present some of the finest speakers in the country, who spoke on major issues in our society,” he said.
“It was empowering to be a part of history on Saturday. The energy in the room was so uplifting, it was something I will truly never forget,” said Rachel Weinberger, a graduate student at the University of Delaware’s Horn Program in Entrepreneurship.
Speakers included DSU President Dr. Harry Williams, The Charity Company’s Eric Smith, student Rachel Weinberger, AllHipHop.com’s Chuck Creekmur, Dr. Francine Edwards, fellow Horn Program student Jordan Gonzalez and more.
