What Does This Mean for Historically Black Colleges and Universities?

HBCUs such as Howard University and Langston University have increased enrollment rates in 2013, while a majority continues to suffer from enrollment decline. However, African-Americans who graduate from a historically Black college or university do better financially than Blacks who graduate from traditionally white colleges and universities, according to 2011 study by economists at Morehouse College and Howard University.
