Why everyone should consider an HBCU

HBCU schools


HBCU schools

An HBCU is a historical black college; they were created to serve education to African American students. The first HBCU was founded in 1964, and many have been expanded throughout the years. HBCUs are welcoming to every race and are not meant to be segregated.

According to Coach May, the new varsity baseball coach, he loved the experience he had teaching at an HBCU. He loved being able to “meet new people from all around the world, and the experience was incredible.” This shows that people who are not African American who get involved with an HBCU just want to learn or do better for their community. Some people don’t understand that just because it was made back then only for people of color does not mean that it should stay that way. People who want change should be okay with moving forward from the past. If we keep schools just for African Americans and don’t let others come because of their race, that is equivalent to segregation. Now, I understand having an opinion on things, but I don’t see a problem with people wanting to learn. Diversity is a good thing, and it’s time for a change.

Diversity means everyone can be more educated about everyone’s beliefs and pasts. This will cause a big change in the environment as well as change in people’s perspective on things. Plus if we only allow one race to go to a school, what is that saying about us? With all the fighting for equality and all wanting equal rights, we have to do the same thing we fight for ourselves for other people. There should not be any place anywhere that is segregated. When you begin looking at colleges, I highly suggest you consider some HBCUs. Here is a list to help you in your searching: https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/rankings/hbcu
