Morris Brown is a shell of its former self. The Atlanta campus made famous in such films as “Stomp the Yard” and “Drumline” sits almost vacant. The historically black college owns just three remaining buildings, the rest sold off to pay its debts and claw its way out of bankruptcy.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution talked with Morris Brown president Stanley Pritchett this week about his hopes for the college’s future. He also led a short tour of the school’s remaining properties and took us inside the historic Fountain Hall educational building, constructed in 1882.
Inside the historic building where students once attended classes and chapel services, the rooms are now littered with peeling paint, shattered windows and and even a decaying squirrel. What hasn’t been vandalized has deteriorated in the dozen years since the building was functional. Still, Pritchett is optimistic. [ View More ]
Dear Morris Brown College Alumni and Friends:
Because you helped us move forward when things were most bleak, Morris Brown College is still serving as a nurturing ground for students with diverse backgrounds, large numbers of whom returned to their hometowns as teachers, ministers, doctors, attorneys, and other professionals, adding vitality to their communities. Recent graduates have gone on to pursue higher degrees at such institutions as Emory University, Clark Atlanta University, the Interdenominational Theological Center, and New York University, as well as other institutions.
As a supporter of Morris Brown College, you, our alumni and friends, are aware of the legacy we have built. You have a better idea of what is at stake and know the critical juncture where we currently stand. We thank you for your continued support, prayers and much needed financial sacrifices; but the journey is not over. While we received $14 million from the sale of property during bankruptcy, those funds were disbursed to help eliminate over $30 million of indebtedness. [ View More ]
