Comments: Thanks and New Resource for your "Popular Links" Page Hi there, I found your Popular Links page (http://sns1911.powweb.com/id7.html) today while doing some research on school districts. Just wanted to say thanks for putting this together – I found it to be very helpful. While I was browsing your site, I noticed that one of your links was broken: http://www.hope.edu/resources/arc/collections/registers/wts/brewton.html. Thought you might want to know! I wanted to also suggest another useful resource that grades thousands of US cities based on educational opportunities: AreaVibes.com (http://www.areavibes.com) I thought your visitors would probably find it valuable as well. Let me know what you think – hope you have a great day! Thanks again, Diana

Comments: This is such a historical legacy! I was searching the web for research information on black boarding schools in America and I found this site. As a HBCU student, I can only imagine the struggles that this institution must have faced to survive 100 years! More importantly, it’s so moving to know that the students of this great schools are still holding to the legacy that educated them. God bless, Mr. Dooley and his family for such a great sacrifice and gift to black students in Alabama! John Walters
