Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*

I’m from Atlanta GA specifically the Ashview heights community located near Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse, and Spelman College. I heard of HBCUs by applying for college and learning how they have historically been important in educating black people.
