Since their founding, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have created a rich history full of traditions that speak to the African American race. Recently, Hampton University (an HBCU in Hampton, Virginia) crowned a new "Miss Hampton University" representative who was not black. This announcement has stirred some mixed feelings from Hampton University students, alumni and others.

Is this a positive change toward diversity at HBCUs? Or should there be concern about a non-black representing a historically black college? Are HBCUs holding on to their traditions or imposing reverse racism? This will be a heated debate that you don't want to miss.
