Directions to Attempt to Make an HBCU in New Haven

As we continue this tour, we are moving closer to Yale’s campus. As many New Haveners know, Yale occupies a significant part of New Haven. And while there are several other colleges in the area such as Gateway Community College, Southern Connecticut State University, and Albertus Magnus College, there is one more school that could’ve made New Haven its home -- a Historically Black College/University. Listen to the next entry as you make your way toward Yale’s center of campus. 

If you ventured into the cemetery, walk down High Street toward Wall Street as you listen to this next entry. If you skipped going inside, and you are on Ashmun Street, continue straight onto York Street, walking toward Wall Street.
