This morning at 10:30, the Board of Trustee (IHL) announced the preferred candidate for the presidential office at Alcorn State University, as Dr. Alfred Rankins, Jr. There will be a session on Alcorn State University's Campus on Tuesday.
During Mr. Avery Ford's speech, the SGA President of Alcorn State University, at the Junior Monarch Luncheon on last Saturday, he stated, "Dr. Russell and the rest of the founding members of MAMGA wanted to create a fairytale that would uplift young African American people in the community of Mobile and that fairytale for many would come true." All former MAMGA Royal Court members, look at how we are posting our pictures of when we served on the Royal Court. For many of us, those memories that the Royal Court created has bonded us together through our professional lives, families, and just good fellowship. I just want to thank Dr. Russell and the founders of MAMGA for serving the African American community and uplifting young people and their families during a time in America when black folks were told that they were nothing. Thank you Dr. Russell. Joseph Roberson Tillie Warmack Victor Lovett Azure Joiner-Jackson Alecia Watt Pat Kidd Carl Cunningham Sr. Latrice Lawson McGrady Tiffany Chaney

The Arizona Baseball team swept their two-day three-game weekend series with visiting Alcorn State University, taking both ends of a doubleheader Sunday by scores of 20-1 and 11-1. Here are some of the highlights from Game 1 of the double dip. Wildcats sophomore shortstop Kevin Newman was one of the four UA players (Scott Kingery, Riley Moore and Bobby Dalbec) to drive in three runs. Newman also once again flashed the defense we've come to know from him in his two seasons at Arizona. Starting pitcher Cody Hamlin pitched a complete-game, allowing just five hits and striking out five with no walks. Dalbec hit a two-run home run. His second of the season as the Wildcats busted the game open with a ten-run 7th inning. The Wildcats are now 6-2 on the season and will host Seton Hall next weekend.

Days like this I wish I was back at Alcorn State University. Does anybody remember that God! Fried chicken that they served in the cafe on Sundays? Or getting in your car and hitting the loop on a Sunday afternoon.
For years I traveled Highway 61 south out of Port Gibson. Just south of the old Lorman store and the highway that goes to Alcorn State University, there is a small group of tombstones right along the highway. Also in the same area on the left side of the highway, there is a rather large tombstone and a smaller one sitting a short distance from a nice distinguished old home. Does anyone know anything about these. I am retired now and don't get to travel in that area but I just feel there is a story there, know what I mean.

First session of the student ambassador retreat has started with Dean Barnes of Alcorn State University!! Consisted of the history of Alcorn and some very interesting facts that I would have never known. Fact: Medgar Wiley Evers and his wife was married in The Oakland Chapel that is located here on the oldest land grant in Mississippi! Alcorn State
Medgar Evers was a native of Decatur, Mississippi, attending school there until being inducted into the U.S. Army in 1943. Despite fighting for his country as part of the Battle of Normandy, Evers soon found that his skin color gave him no freedom when he and five friends were forced away at gunpoint from voting in a local election. Despite his resentment over such treatment, Evers enrolled at Alcorn State University, majoring in business administration. While at the school, Evers stayed busy by competing on the school's football and track teams, also competing on the debate team, performing in the school choir and serving as president of the junior class.
We just completed our first Alcorn State University Brave Connection. Students were able to watch and listen to the band as well as audition for scholarship money and complete admission packets. One young lady following the presentation came to the front when everybody departed the building and started crying. I did now know what was wrong. I could see her principal and counselor surrounding her. I walked over to see what was wrong. The young lady said, "I am tired of living the life I am living. After seeing the band today, I want to go to college. I just need some help because I do not know what to do." The principal and counselor said, "We are here to support you and guide you. We are here for you." This young lady is a junior in high school. There were probably more students who were feeling the same way. God always reminds me what I do must be in his name. I knew the idea of the Brave Connection would be good but I never thought how this could really impact young people and in particularly ...

Horace Roscoe Cayton Sr. (1859–1940) was an American journalist and politician. The son of a slave and a white plantation owner's daughter, Cayton went to Seattle, Washington in the late 19th century and published the Seattle Republican, a newspaper directed towards white and black readers. At one point this newspaper had the second largest circulation in the city. Horace was born in 1859 on a plantation in Mississippi. After Emancipation, he and his family moved to a farm near Port Gibson, Mississippi. He graduated from Alcorn College (now Alcorn State University) in the early 1880s. He headed west, convinced that his education and will to succeed would help him reach his real potential, and ended up in Seattle where he worked as a political reporter for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Horace found employment at the Seattle Standard, the city’s first newspaper for African Americans, until 1893 when it failed. He issued the first edition of the Seattle Republican in May 1894, seeking to appeal to both ...
Celebrating Black History Month: Alcorn A&M College opened February 7, 1872 - Alcorn A&M College opened. Alcorn State University is a historically black comprehensive land-grant institution in Lorman, Mississippi. It was founded in 1871 by the Reconstruction era legislature to provide higher education for freedmen. It was the first black land grant college in the United States. The university is counted as a census-designated place and had a resident population of 1,017 at the 2010 census. Medgar Evers, a civil rights activist, graduated in 1948 from there. Students at the college were part of the mid-twentieth century civil rights struggle, working to register residents for voting and struggling to end segregation. Other alumni have been activists, politicians and professionals in Mississippi and other states.

Her frankness and optimism represented a new beginning for the organization. Evers-Williams was born in Vicksburg, Missouri, and enrolled at the then all-black Alcorn Agricultural and Mechanical College (now Alcorn State University) where she met Medgar Evers, her future husband and ...

The Windsor Ruins are in Claiborne County in the U.S. state of Mississippi, about 10 miles (16 km) southwest of Port Gibson near Alcorn State University. The ruins are those of the largest antebellum Greek Revival mansion built in the state, and have been used in various motion pictures. Windsor Plantation at one time covered 2,600 acres (11 km2). Smith Coffee Daniell II, who was born in Mississippi in 1826, the son of an Indian fighter turned farmer and landowner, constructed the mansion itself in 1859-1861. In 1849 he married his cousin Catherine Freeland (1830–1903) by whom he had seven children, three of whom survived into adulthood. Basic construction of the house, which was designed by David Shroder (Shroder also designed and built Rosswood, which is located in Lorman) was done by slave labor. The bricks for use in the 45 foot columns were made in a kiln across the road from the house. The columns were then covered with mortar and plaster. There were 29 of these columns supporting the projecting r ...

Alcorn State University is at Victory Missionary Baptist Church today doing on site admissions
I am truly thankful for what God has done in my life. He gets all the glory and all the praise for what I'm about to say because the is no way that I could have done this. After graduating from Alcorn State University my dream of becoming a doctor was crushed. I didn't get accepted into any medical school. I had a plan. I was going to medical school right after undergrad, I was going to get married during my third year, and have my first child in my fourth year. The plan I had for myself was not the plan God had. After not getting into medical school, I attended a program geared towards helping underrepresented minorities get into medical and dental school. I met a couple of lifetime friends, but that program still didn't result into medical school. Now I am another year behind on "my" plan. I can't really describe the feeling I felt. I couldn't understand why God would be allowing this to happen to me. I was doing everything I could think to do. After seeing all my friends accomplish their goals only see ...

Ethel Mae Baines Sayles was born on this date in 1922. She was an African-American administrator and biostatistician. Born in Kilmichael, MS., Ethel Mae Baines and her sister, Corrine, were daughters of Elva Lee Sanders Baines and Shed Hill Baines. As a young girl, she and her sister attended St John's Methodist Church in Natchez, MS, and spent their summers with their grandparents. Mama Cora (her mother's side of the family-Sanders) kept their toys in a blanket, which she took down each time they visited. While visiting, their cousin would take them on walks in the woods teaching them the names of all of the flowers and plants. Mama Cora was very active in the Baptist church. Her father's side of the family was Methodist Episcopal. Ethel and Corinne were A students in school. Both worked in a doctor's office to help save for college. In 1943, Ethel graduated from Alcorn State University. She was the more adventurous and glamorous of the two and from there began working with the federal government in a nu ...

Campbell, a graduate of Alcorn State University, thanks God for allowing her to take a quantum leap from rural Mississippi to a nationally recognized civil rights leader. Known by many as a: champion of education, civil rights, environmental steward and as an author, Tammie founded the Honey Brown Hope Foundation in 1991 to provide youth with character building programs. Believing that liberty is God’s gift to humanity and that everyone should be equally valued, Campbell petitioned Merriam Webster and Random House dictionaries to remove or redefine the n-word in 1991 and got the NAACP involved. In 2007, she held a symbolic n-word burial that was featured nationally on CNN, in Manhattan City Council News, in state and all local media outlets including on the Houston Chronicle’s front page.

Today’s History Spotlight: Alex Haley. Haley was born in Ithaca, New York, on August 11, 1921, and was the oldest of three brothers and a sister. Haley lived with his family in Henning, Tennessee before returning to Ithaca with his family when he was five years old. Haley's father was Simon Haley, a professor of agriculture at Alabama A&M University, and his mother was Bertha George Haley (née Palmer) who was from Henning. The younger Haley always spoke proudly of his father and the obstacles of racism he had overcome. Like his father, Alex Haley was enrolled at Alcorn State University at age 15.
