My SSU!

When I was deciding on exactly what school I wanted to go to, I always knew I wanted to go to a HBCU, but I was trying everything in my power not to go to Savannah State.

The History
of HBCUs

In 1865, most colleges and universities in the Southern United States blocked African American admissions. Private institutions like Howard University, Morehouse College, Hampton University, and Tuskegee University were established.  Still, it wasn't until the Morrill Act of 1890 which required states to provide land grants for colleges to serve Black students.  Allowing Historically Black Colleges and Universities to build their campuses and made it a requirement for states to show that race was not an admissions criterion. From this act, more private and public colleges and universities were established. 

 

HBCUs have long been an outstanding source of academic accomplishment and great pride for the African American community, as they provide associate degree, bachelor, master, and doctoral programs. HBCUs have played a critical role in ensuring that African American students and others receive a quality education. HBCUs have educated students who have become successful alumni fully integrated within America's diverse workforce for almost two centuries. Today, HBCUs have produced 80 percent of black judges, 50 percent of black lawyers, 50 percent of black doctors, 40 percent of black engineers, 40 percent of black members of Congress, 24 percent of black STEM professionals, and 13 percent of black CEOs in America.
