Historical Black College and Universities set a standard in the American History. Famous contributors such as: Frederick Douglas, W.E.B Dubois, and George Washington Carver, were educated at historically black colleges allowing them to make profound changes in American history. Noticing their high education from an HBCU, it gives hope to minorities that everyone can obtain an education. As a result, Historical Black College and Universities stands to continue its dominancy in the American history confirming that more students are becoming more educated. Historical Black College and Universities has placed a chapter in the American History that no one can erase. Despite all the animosity towards these institutions, HBCU’s contributes an opportunity for a higher education in the American History. HBCU are certainly relevant to this society. Historical black schools mission is to educate black America. One of biggest obstacles that African Americans face is obtaining an education. An HBCU allows blacks to have a second chance for higher learning. As a member who attends an HBCU, I have learned that these institutions will help those who want to be educated. They are relevant today because other minorities are attending these schools. HBCU’s have opened the door of educational opportunity for many more blacks and for those that are unprepared. Many are electing to attend an HBCU and it makes up a high percentage of United States higher education institution. Most importantly, HBCU success brings diversity to higher learning. The lesson from an HBCU conquers leadership and places a chapter in society. These institutions has played a vital role in African American learning. From an HBCU, we can obtain history and pride of knowing what it was like when other historical inventors went to these schools. It also endures potential growth and development because the education is being taught at a higher level.
