Historically Black Colleges And Universities (HBCU) are colleges or universities that were established before 1964 with the intention of serving the African American community. Throughout their history, the black colleges of Texas struggled to develop adequate financial resources. Since most whites were either apathetic or hostile toward them, state and philanthropic support for these schools remained limited. Consequently, black colleges drew much of their support from the most impoverished segment of Texas society. This support by African Americans for education was literally a penny here, a penny there.
