Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"That a group of schools exists under the official rubric 'historically black colleges and universities' (HBCU) is not well-known amongst the general public . . . examines many aspects of these 103 higher education institutions, which enroll approximately 21 percent of all black college students . . . This volume is recommended for all education and black studies collections." - American Reference Books Annual
