In 1854 several years before the start of the Civil War by an act of the Pennsylvania legislature, Ashmun Institute, the first college founded solely for African-American students, is officially chartered on this day.

Established in the rolling farmlands of southern Pennsylvania, Ashmun Institute was named after Jehudi Ashmun, who helped reorganize and preserve the struggling African-American colony in Africa that later grew into the independent nation of Liberia. The Ashmun Institute was established to “give theological, classical, and scientific training” to African Americans, opened on January 1, 1857. John Pym Carter served as the college’s first president and in 1866 the school was renamed Lincoln University. http://homepage.lincoln.edu/lincolnhomepage/

Today I would like to acknowledge the diversity that makes our country truly great with the words of Scripture, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

All are one in Christ is more than a quaint phrase from an ancient book. We are one color – the color loved by God. Let’s celebrate our humanity and welcome the unity we have with the diversity we share.

Be Well…
