An HBCU in Houston, Texas. Its origins can be traced to Heman Sweatt, an African-American who applied to the University of Texas Law School in the 1940's. The university did not admit blacks. Rather than admit him, the state of Texas created an entire university and law school for blacks, which eventually came to be known as Texas Southern University and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law.
I'll be attending Texas Southern University in the Fall.
