HBCU Walking Billboard is a 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to increase awareness of, attendance to, and graduation from Historically Black Colleges & Universities. What started as a simple t-shirt campaign to accompany an 8th grade English project, has grown into a host of college recruitment events, HBCU student send-offs, and a national social media campaign.
ANYONE can be an #HBCUWalkingBillboard:
1. Prospects: Current elementary, middle, and high school students who will one day consider an HBCU
2. Rookies: College students currently attending an HBCU
3. Alum: Proud graduates of any HBCU
4. Allies: Supporters who did not attend an HBCU, but recognize their inherent value.
