Transcript of HBCU presentation
(Historical Black College and University)
What is HBCU?
A historically black college or university that was originally founded to educate students of African American descent.
There are 101 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the nation and nine percent of all African American college students attend HBCUs.
Anyone of any race or color is welcome to attend a HBCU. Originally the HBCUs were established because the newly freed slaves were not allowed to study in any other college or university. Today, many talented and bright minds all come together on the HBCU campus and are able to study in an environment where color and nationality differences are often celebrated.

How HBCU Started
After the Civil War, African American education blossomed. Black ministers and white philanthropists established scchools all across the South to educate freed slaves. These Schools, more than 100 of which are still open today, became known as historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs.
They started in church basments,in old schoolhouses, and in people's homes because of course, education was kept away from them.
Many schools were designed to provide just basic primary and secondary education.
