This news segment for Houston’s KPRC-TV highlights student life at Prairie View A&M College, now known as Prairie View A&M University. Following a look inside the classroom of various training courses, University President Alvin I. Thomas describes the goal of a project aimed at rural students. Portions of the film appear silent here, and would have been voiced over by the anchorperson during a live broadcast. Prairie View A&M is a historically black university located in Prairie View, northwest of Houston. Founded in 1876, the university is the state’s second oldest public institution of higher education, and its first state-supported college established specifically for African Americans.
