What is an HBCU?

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are inclusive institutions of higher learning that were established before the mid 20th century in response to refusal of Black intellectuals to Predominantly White Institutions in the United States. Instead of acquiescing, Leaders banded together to serve the Black community.

To this day, HBCU’s have unmatched commitment to (primarily) serve the Black Community. While it’s history is Black, HBCU’s offer exposure to students all around the globe, from every Continent (excluding Antarctica). While school segregation no longer exists (in its ancient form) the need for HBCU’s is higher than ever.
