As a product of multiple HBCU’s myself (undergrad: Hampton University & grad: Howard University) I’m thrilled to see what schools have stepped it’s game up.  U.S. News has just revealed it’s annual list for the top Historically Black Colleges & Universities in the nation. Did your school make the top 20? I know both of mine did. Peep out the list.
