Description of the flag

A crimson flag, with the seal in gold, and above the name of the institution.

Tuskegee University (until recently known as Tuskegee Institute - is one of the major traditionally Afro-American institutions of higher education in the United States. Founded immediately after the War Between the States during the so-called Reconstruction period in American history, 'Skegee (as it is generally known to generations of students, faculty members, graduates, and friends) has pioneered in the education of this particular ethnic group. Together with its sister institutions such as Fisk University in Nashville, Howard University in Washington, Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, and Morehouse College in Atlanta, Tuskegee was largely responsible for the creation of an Afro-American middle class by the end of the 19th Century which was to provide a leadership cadre for the Afro-American community throughout much of the 20th. A pioneer in scientific agricultural education, as personified by Dr George Washington Carver, and through the dynamic leadership of its longtime president, Booker T. Washington, Tuskegee is one of the most distinguished American universities.
