Founded in 2010, the HBCU Digest is among the world’s most widely-read blogs for coverage and commentary on historically black colleges and universities. It seeks to provide critical insight on the intersections of race, culture, politics and finance and their impact on America’s 100+ HBCUs.
The HBCU Digest has been cited by a robust list of trusted news sources, including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, CNN and MSNBC. It attracts more than 2 million annual readers, and counts more than 150,000 email and social media subscribers.
The HBCU Digest is the presenting organization of the original HBCU Awards, which annually recognizes the best in leadership, athletics, academics and student achievement from black colleges throughout the country. This program has helped several winning institutions to increase media visibility, private giving and branding.
The HBCU Digest was founded by Jarrett Carter Sr., a 2003 graduate of Morgan State University.
