It’s Black History Month, and what better way to celebrate this time of reflection than by showcasing our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Every Monday, KAC will show you why we are “HBCU Proud!” and share facts about HBCUs!
The first HBCUs were founded in Pennsylvania and Ohio before the American Civil War to provide Black youths with an education at a time when Blacks were largely prevented from attending established colleges and universities. Today, there are 107 HBCUs with more than 228,000 students enrolled.
Here are this week’s Knoxville Alumnae Chapter members who are HBCU Proud!
