At Least 9 US Universities Receive Bomb Threat on First Day of Black History Month

In the United States, at least nine historically black colleges and universities, the so-called HBCUs, have been placed on lockdown or had classes postponed.


The reason is several bomb threats that the schools received on the first day of Black History Month, American media report.

These include Howard University in Washington D.C., Morgan State University in Baltimore, Jackson State University in Mississippi, Kentucky State University, Fort Valley State University in Georgia, and Xavier University in New Orleans.

Historically black universities are higher education institutions to serve the black community. Most of these universities emerged after the Civil War when African American students were barred from white campuses. In total, there are about 100 black colleges and universities in the US.

Starting today, Black History Month (BHM) is an annual commemoration of key figures and important events in the African diaspora history.
