Historically Black College – Morris Brown College facing foreclosure
Morris Brown College, a Historically Black College established in 1881 by the African Methodist Episcopal Church, is facing foreclosure.
For more than a decade, Morris Brown College has clung to life as it struggled academically and financially in the face of growing debt and dwindling support.
An auction of assets, including the administration building, is scheduled for September 4.
“This is heartbreaking and not only a sad day in the life of Morris Brown, but in black academia,” said former Atlanta City Councilman Derrick Boazman, a 1990 graduate of Morris Brown.
