Historically Black Colleges Becoming More White

AFRICANGLOBE - HBCU’s have always enrolled students of all races, but they are increasingly becoming less Black. At some, like Bluefield, Blacks now comprise less than half of the student body. At Lincoln University in Missouri, African-Americans account for 40 percent of enrollment while at Alabama’s Gadsden State Community College, 71 percent of the students are White and just 21 percent are Black.
