– Research on Historically Black Colleges and Universities – Call for Papers- BEA On-Location Research Panel Special Issue of Journal of Media Education
As part of its ongoing association-wide initiative in the area of diversity and inclusion, the Broadcast Education Association is proud to issue this special call to those researchers doing work related to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Today there are more than 100 of these institutions that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving Black Americans. Located in 19 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands, most HBCUs have been in operation since right after the Civil War, with many holding the designation of 1890 institutions, established by the Second Morrill Act of 1890. They produce 20 percent of all Black college graduates and are responsible for educating a large percentage of today’s journalists and other practitioners in the mass media.
