What is it that sparked this deep appreciation of HBCUs for you? Chris Paul: A lot of time. When you’re a kid and in different places, you don’t understand how things operate.
I grew up and was at Winston-Salem State all the time, I had family members, cousins, who played at Winston-Salem State, my AAU basketball practices used to be over there. But at the time, Winston-Salem State was a school, Wake Forest was a school, nobody ever said this is a PWI and this is an HBCU. Nobody ever told me why they were two different schools or what the funding was like, I didn’t understand that until I got older. -via complex.com
