About

Overview

What do Althea Gibson, Booker T. Washington, Toni Morrison, Thurgood Marshall, Oprah Winfrey, Jesse Jackson, Jr., and Martin Luther King, Jr., have in common? Each is a graduate of a Historically Black College or University. For much of America's history, African Americans could get a college education only at an HBCU. The stories of these institutions are fascinating; their legacy immeasurable.
