Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) were founded to serve the African American community during segregation when most institutions of higher learning (especially in the South) prohibited blacks from enrolling. Cheyney University (Pennsylvania) established in 1837 was the first HBCU and Shaw University (North Carolina) was the first HBCU founded in the South in 1865. Today there are over 100 HBCUs throughout the US producing the highest percentages of black doctors, lawyers, dentists, engineers, PhD grads, pharmacists, and military officers.
Absolutely!
