More than 12,000 North Carolinians have died due to COVID-19 in the last year. Each person’s passing has left families, friends, and communities grappling with the loss. Host Leoneda Inge remembers the life of Irving Pressley McPhail and his influence on higher education. McPhail served briefly as the president of St. Augustine’s University in Raleigh before succumbing to COVID-19 in October of 2020. Inge also explores how historically Black colleges and universities have fared during the pandemic.
