About the Book
All hail to the queen. The queen of any Historically Black College or University (HBCU) is a prominent figure and role model. Within the safe haven of the academic and cultural incubator specific to HBCUs, the campus queen is the pinnacle of college success for some Black women. The Legacy of the Crown: Miss Virginia Union University provides a historical glimpse of previous women who have held the prestigious title. Queen authors, women who have held the title of Miss VUU, share their memorable experiences, lessons they learned, and the legacy they left behind to the next generation of Black queens. This collection of history in words and pictures is a celebration of the culture, inspiration, and strength of not only Virginia Union University and the queens that graced those “hallowed grounds,” but for everyone who relishes in the beauty of the HBCU experience and wisdom for young women around the globe.
