Hidden History: 75 years later, UNCF still thriving (KRON, 2/24/19)
Nearly half a million kids have graduated from college over the last 75 years because of help from the United Negro College Fund. UNCF has spent decades helping black colleges and universities thrive. The organization is much more than scholarships these days and works to build corporate partnerships to expose students—and the companies—to one another. KRON4’s Pam Moore takes a closer look at how the UNCF is helping bright young students around the country.
