A partnership including Tuskegee University is striving to preserve and highlight stories related to the African American struggle for equality in the 20th century — thanks to a recent $50,000 grant from the National Park Service.

Phillips.
Under the two-year grant, first- and second-hand oral and community histories will be obtained from surviving TISEP/TICEP administrative, student and community program participants and the 13 Black Belt counties that participated from 1963 to 1968. The project will also identify and provide evidential information and materials regarding surviving TICEP centers and sites — in addition to using archival data from Tuskegee University and St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.
In 1965, TISEP received initial federal financial support and embarked on a mission of educational outreach and community service programming. In doing so, it offered learning and leadership programs that fostered personal growth and commitment to helping build an inclusive, just and fair society.
At the conclusion of its summer program, the organization took on a year-round focus and was renamed the Tuskegee Institute Community Education Program (TICEP). Program coordinator Joan Burroughs said extending the university’s reach to influence segregated schools and communities — as well as social, economic and cultural opportunities, and ultimately the potential of black communities — was vital.
