    In light of Kamala Harris becoming the Vice President, I'm putting this article up separately. I posted it here in a related thread. It's traces the history of West Indian students at Howard University from 1867 to 1933, the date it was published.

    Written by Alfred Edgar Smith, an African American activist, journalist, and government worker. Pictured below with Mary Mcleod Bethune and other members of the Federal Council on Negro Affairs. Howard graduate '28, '32
