Do you think that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are still relevant today? Explain. (February 29, 2024)

Nasir Martinez

Yes, I think HBCUs are still relevant because they are somewhat of a safe space for Black college students to be themselves and not be ashamed of who they are.

Yes, I think they are still relevant in this day and age because as a Black student you get a chance to meet other people from all over the world. HBCUs have the best majors, good culture and the best people to educate you. They also have good sports and extracurricular activities to participate in during your down time from studying.

Adaniel Johnson



Business Administration

Vicksburg, Mississippi

Yes, because by remaining open they continue to show the pride and culture of a proud people.

Ariel Knott

Jackson, Mississippi

Yes, because Black students graduate at a much higher rate at HBCUs than their counterparts at Predominately White Institutions (PWIs).

HBCUs are still very relevant today because they continue to play a vital role in providing a quality education by empowering students and fostering a sense of community and cultural pride. They also have a rich history and continue to produce successful graduates who make significant contributions in various fields.
