It was last year almost one month to today that I was escorted into a suite at the Marriott Wardman Hotel for an interview with Dr. George Cooper.  Prior to our interview, I had the privilege of talking to him once on the phone.  While proud to have been able to gain his attention to discuss our interest in covering the 2014 HBCU White House Conference, I was impressed at Dr. Cooper’s level of knowledge about OGTV as he shared with me, his thoughts that OGTV could be helpful to his office in advancing the mission of the White House HBCU initiative.  So as Dr. Cooper walked into his suite, he appeared to be every bit of six foot four inches, I immediately noticed how stately and goliath his form was. The first thing that came to my mind was, wow, Dr. Cooper is a "Gentle Giant."

It was not just his physique that was grand; Dr. Cooper’s commitment to Historically Black Colleges and Universities loomed larger than life itself. He leaves behind an unquestionable legacy of leadership in the institution of education for people of color.  While the responsibilities and challenges continue for these colleges, it is fair to say that based upon our interview, and the recent developments of public policy focusing on HBCU's, the challenges, Dr. Cooper leaves behind, are better prepared for a major breakthrough by the leadership that follows. Thanks to Dr. Cooper’s wisdom, encouragement, commitment and confidence, HBCU’s have their best days ahead.

As we provide you a visual of our conversation, we encourage you to learn more about Dr. George Cooper, the HBCU Giant in today’s OGTV feature story. 

OGTV prays for the family and friends of Dr. Cooper during their time of loss and joins the nation in mourning as we remember his legacy.
