Description

Founded in 1866, Fisk University has a rich history. Located in Nashville, the university was established for the education of recently freed slaves just months after the end of the Civil War. The university's distinctive Jubilee Hall was funded by the Fisk Jubilee Singers who raised money for the struggling school during an 1871 tour in the U.S. and Europe. W.E.B. Du Bois is one of many notable Fisk alumni. Today Fisk is a top-ranked historically black university, and its strengths in the liberal arts and sciences earned the school a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.
