Baylor University in Waco, Texas will keep its name and mount new statues commemorating the first African American students to graduate from the university, according to a press release issued on March 23.
The decision is the recommendation of a report by the Commission on Historic Campus Representations, a committee appointed by the Baylor Board of Regents in June 2020 to review the university’s ties to slavery and the Confederacy.
The Commission released its long-awaited reported in March, calling for a compromise that will preserve Baylor’s affiliation with the university as it moves forward with plans to commemorate the African American students who integrated the university in the 1960s. According to the press release, the university will erect statues of Rev. Robert Gilbert ’67 and Barbara Walker ’67 on the front of the Tidwell Bible Building on Speight Avenue.
Judge R.E.B. Baylor’s statue, the university said, “Will maintain its current location on Founders Mall.”
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
