Hmmm...

I wonder what HBCUs actually have a PhD program in Computer Science Question

I can attest to the "you cant do this coz u r are y'know...dont make me say it" mindset and was quite shocking at the graduate level. My graduating cohort will be historical,others have dropped out but them colored women they didnt think would make it past year 1 are intact and doing great.

Nice!
When i was there in grad school the minorities in engineering were very tight.
Sucks the sciences have no network. good for her that she overcame that!

Thankfully my adviser told me very early on "you are female and worse you are black,there are very many who dont want you here & dont think u r good enough...keep that in mind and show them"...shes an older white lady who went thru hell (part of the MIT engineering female faculty scandal some years ago)

Congratulations to her.

 
I went to UM for my MSEM and I know that she faced a great deal of adversity. In addition to being incredibly racist, their programs are also incredibly sexist. Props to her for enduring and thriving!
