The United States is home to over 100 institutions of higher learning known as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Each year, over 300,000 students choose to be educated at these schools over Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs). This decision happens amid a national discussion about the relevance of HBCUs, considering reported continual declines in enrollment and increases in financial woes.
In the video above, two students, Marcus Lee and Brandon Hill, reflect on their experiences at both an HBCU and a PWI.
