Publisher's description: This gathering of sixty images, along with the essays that frame them, gives us a new way to think about the too often troubled status of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The bell in the clock tower at Atlanta's Morris Brown College bears an inscription about the ideal of educational access, that it be "without regard to sex, race, or color." Yet most of the Morris Brown campus has lain silent for more than a decade. Established in 1881, it was all but shut down in 2002 after years of fiscal hardship were capped by a mismanagement scandal. Pride still runs high among its alumni, however, and its current leadership vows to revive the school. Meanwhile, as Andrew Feiler's stirring photos show, Morris Brown is literally falling apart. In the spirit of those photographers who have documented the physical decline of our valued institutions--from small family farms to entire cities--Feiler points his lens at one embattled place and dares us to look away. Aiming to "open minds, trigger emotion, stimulate discussion, and, perhaps, prompt action," his images project a new layer of meaning onto the Morris Brown story.
