Since the founding of Cheyney University, the first Historically Black College and University (HBCU), in 1837, HBCUs have provided opportunities for higher education for African American students who might not have had opportunities for upward mobility throughout our nation. Today there are 104 HBCUs located in 20 states and The Registry has served approximately 30 over the last three decades. HBCUs are needed now more than ever. That is why we covered this important topic at our 28th Annual Seminar.
