Historically Black Colleges and Universities by Skylar Woodhouse

On this map you will explore some of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) of the United States. HBCUs have a very special place in the hearts of African Americans as they serve as a safe place where people of color are guaranteed to be given undivided attention and will not be discriminated because of their race. This maps recognizes notable alumni from each college/university with an intention of showing people that HBCUs are producing successful graduates like any mainstream school. Below is a TedTalk led by Dr. Elwood Robinson, exploring the history of HBCUs and why the campus life is so special and sacred. I hope you enjoy learning about the importance of HBCUs to the African American community to gain new perspective.
