North Carolina Historically Black Colleges and Universities Timeline

Prior to the Civil War ending in 1865, there were only a few higher education institutions exclusively for African Americans. These institutions and the ones established after the Civil War ended are referred to as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Twelve HBCUs were developed in North Carolina from 1867 to 1910.  Today eleven are still in existence, five public institutions and six private.

The North Carolina Historically Black Colleges and Universities Timeline was developed using TimelineJS, a project of KnightLab at Northwestern University. TimelineJS can be found at: Used under Mozilla Public License v. 2.0.
