The phrase in brackets means that "she is black and was educated at Lane college."
Which part bothers you? Is it he fact that she is black or that she was educated at Lane college?
This morning, she used the phrase "who attended the book fair on last night."

Our [black-educated in Tennessee at Lane College] principal uses the phrases "on yesterday," "on today" and "on tomorrow" CONSTANTLY, especially on the intercom during morning announcements. This is the first person that I have ever heard do so. Everyone is afraid of her except me, but I don't feel like going to the mat on this one. I will let her continue to show what I consider to be poor grammar. To me, it reflects her upbringing and presents a bad first impression. Of course, at our school, her grammar is much better than about 30% of the teachers.
