Here is one for the history books. Next year Texas A & M Cadets will have a new Commander. Marquis Alexander will be the first black to lead the Aggie Corp of Cadets.
School officials said, “This is a young man that has all the right qualities.”
Texas A & M opened it’s doors in 1876 and Blacks were not allowed until 87 years later. The first African-American didn’t join the corp until 1964.
Congratulations Commander Alexander.
