ATLANTA (AP) - U.S. Deputy Secretary of Education Jim Shelton is scheduled to visit Atlanta to discuss the role of historically black colleges and universities.

Officials say Shelton will speak Thursday morning at the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College on the role of black colleges and universities in achieving equal opportunity and President Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, which is meant to create paths to success children.

Shelton is also expected to speak about the department’s civil rights data collection, which explores disparities in access to educational opportunities among minority children.
