Loved seeing the home place of the "Great Debaters". It was a very beautiful day for a walk and seeing the home of James Farmer was particularly interesting. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to run into Denzel Washington on the campus.

If you would like your family to see a college founded in 1873, this is the place to visit. See James Farmer's childhood home. Walk the street "The Great Debaters" walked. Take a picture by the Kappa Alpha Psi a Fraternity bell. Great history lesson for teens.

A must visit when in Marshall. This Historical HBCU has a history that intertwines with Hollywood and with Alumni from all across the country. An amazing and stellar academic institution. A history buff will be in heaven!!!
