Coaching at a Historically Black College and University
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) were established as a result of African Americans not being allowed to attend white colleges. This resulted in a separate schooling system. Regarding intercollegiate athletics, HBCUs were primarily the only means for an African American student-athlete to compete at that level. Success was ever present at many sports for such athletes. Today, HBCUs are competing for quality athletes with many of the majority institutions. This panel of coaches is designed to elucidate various issues that coaches at HBCUs endure (recruiting, facilities, etc.).
