Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU's) are institutions of higher learning that were originally established to educate and serve African-Americans during the period of segregation. Many were founded because most predominately white institutions (PWI's) prevented blacks from enrolling simply based on the color of their skin.
Overcoming these challenges and creating our own schools, proud HBCU institutions have produced brilliant scholars, global influencers, world-class athletes, renowned musicians, leading educators, medical professionals, talented artists, innovative scientists, political heavyweights, media giants and a host of other outstanding leaders in their field. These proud HBCU graduates have impacted every facet of society.
HBCU ALUM spotlights many of these 100+ schools, their students, alumni, and faculty/staff. By focusing on HBCU scholars, as well as legendary figures, we strive to spread the Black College experience and culture to the masses!
