http://www.bestcolleges.com/features/top-30-historically-black-colleges/

In the United States, colleges and universities dedicated to black students have existed since the 19th century. Such schools would come to be known as historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs for short. Today, over 100 U.S. colleges and universities identify as HBCUs. Using an established rankings methodology, and factoring in the average SAT and ACT scores of each school’s incoming class, Best Colleges.com assessed the merits of all 104 schools and created a list of the top 30. The schools on this list are as well regarded for their academic rigor as they are for their commitment to the ambitions and accomplishments of black citizens and their communities.
