Historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have a long and storied history of stirring up support for the collective cause and coming together to pool resources. Generations of alumni have worked hard to survive societal setbacks and bring about change by dreaming big and doing great things like many of their famous HBCU almuni such as Thrugood Marshall, Zora Neale Hurston, Spike Lee, and Kamala Harris.
Dream and Dream Big

Typical Hurdles at Traditional HBCUs
