ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- This year, September 7-10 is HBCU Week.
It celebrates Historically Black Colleges and Universities by paying tribute to their legacy of promoting equal opportunities for high-quality education.
HBCUs across the country hold treasured experiences, stories, images, and artifacts, but many are still missing from historical knowledge, according to Getty.
To change that statistic, Getty Images and Stand Together created the inaugural Getty Images Photo Archive Grant for HBCU's.
This unique grant opportunity will commit $500,000 towards the digitization of HBCU photographic archives, including up to 100,000 archival photos for two HBCU Grant recipients.
Getty Images will represent these digitized photos, making the content available for educational and non-commercial uses, providing a new revenue source for the HBCU grant recipients while giving life to previously untold stories.
