Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are the birthplace of majority of the Black Greek Lettered Organizations (BGLOs). Without Howard University in Washington D.C., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated's course in history would be written differently. The 'Think HBCU' initiative pays tribute and reignites support of our nation's HBCUs.
