Disturbing Wave of Bomb Threats Targeting HBCUs

When they were first formed in the 1870s, 1880s, they were burned and under threat. And now, 150 years later, they’re under threat again.

... I think it’s really significant, because HBCUs, many of them, were formed right after the Civil War, and so they’ve been around for over 150 years. And I think the threat that they’re under now is really significant and really is almost — is really telling, because it’s kind of like where this country is, that 150 years after their formation, once again they’re under threat. When they were first formed in the 1870s, 1880s, they were burned and under threat. And now, 150 years later, they’re under threat again. - Democracy Now!
