Sygielski said, “The trek mirrors the journey enslaved Africans traveled seeking freedom. Unlike the fear and secrecy surrounding the path of enslaved Africans, however, due to my privilege, I will ride openly during daylight hours.”
HACC is committed to being on the front line when it comes to implementing programs and procedures that ensure the college is an open and accepting space for everyone. With support from our selfless donors, every HACC student will continue to be welcomed.
