"...NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the
United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim August 30 through September 5, 2009, as National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week.

As a proud student of an HBCU I am happy that we are finally gettting the recognition that we deserve.
Thank You Mr. President.
