Prairie View A&M University has big plans for Sandra Bland Parkway, recently named in honor of the 28-year-old woman who died in the Waller County Jail.

The historically black university will spend millions of dollars to build retail shops, student housing, entertainment centers and more along the road that winds into campus.

The investment in infrastructure is a sign that Prairie View A&M is bucking a trend faced by most historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs.

  1. This is so awesome and a great tribute to the lasting legacy of PVA&M’s finest student. Her sorority SGR, should also do something as well. Anything to show that her life was not in vain and Sandra Bland Life Does Matter to the University and the political and social well being on the HBCU community.
