“Maybe by our efforts, we can bring the school back together because in order to go forward in life, we believe that you have to know about your past first. We wouldn’t mind if Coppin State set a trend for HBCUs with this project because this is dope!” that is what TCR said, regarding current Coppin State University students recreating a photo from back in the day to honor former students.

From The Shade Room:

TSR Black History: The pride at HBCUs runs decades deep. During this Black History Month, a group of current students from Coppin State University in Baltimore decided to pay tribute to their alumni by recreating vintage pictures from the 70s.


The decades-old photos were recently found on campus, according to The Coppin Room. The group named the series, Coppin Flash Forward.


It was important for students to honor the school’s rich history because they noticed a gap between the school’s alumni and current students. Then a student named Starr had the idea to recreate the historic photos to display the past and present life of their university.
