Historically black colleges and universities are a cornerstone of the black community and the American education system. There are still 105 HBCUs operating today. Their value is immeasurable, but have you ever wondered where they all are?

The Higher Education Act of 1965 defines a what we to be our HBCUs as: “…any historically black college or university that was established prior to 1964, whose principal mission was, and is, the education of black Americans…” The U.S. Department of Education also has an Initiative on HBCUs, which maintains a list of institutions.

At NewsOne, we’ve used that list to map out the location of every HBCU. Check it out below!
