(BPRW) Denny’s Partners with Getty Images to Preserve History at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
(Black PR Wire) SPARTANBURG, S.C. – As part of its continuing commitment to Black colleges, Denny’s Inc. today announced a major partnership with Getty Images, a preeminent global visual content creator and marketplace, to help preserve the history of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Through this partnership, Denny’s will provide stipends to students at the HBCUs who have been chosen as the recipients of the Getty Images Photo Archive Grants for HBCUs, a program that aims to support the digitization of the invaluable visual history of HBCUs.
The students will be working alongside the Getty Images team and the historians and archivists at each HBCU to research, digitize and restore these valuable archives. The inaugural grant recipients are Claflin University, Orangeburg, S.C., North Carolina Central University, Durham, N.C., Jackson State University, Jackson, Miss., and Prairie View A&M University, Prairie View, Texas. Over 100,000 photos will be available for licensing in the “Historically Black Colleges & Universities Collection,” on gettyimages.com. Getty Images plans to work with other HBCUs in the future.
