Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Historically Black Colleges and UniversitiesIn 1996, within months of founding the company, The James Group set out to attack the gap between the technology haves and have-nots. The James Group was instrumental in creating a coalition between Apple Computer, The U.S. Department of Education, United Minority Contractors Association, A.H. Williams and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

The resulting program climaxed in 1997 with a technology summit in Baton Rouge, La that marked the first time representatives from all 106 HBCUs, ever assembled in one location. The program offered the HBCU's much needed computer equipment at tremendous savings, backed by Department of Education guaranteed loans.
