Published on Aug 5, 2015 It’s been 77 years since civil rights activist and poet Langston Hughes wrote his chilling poem “Kids Who Die” which illuminates the horrors of lynchings during the Jim Crow era. Now, as we approach the one year mark of Michael Brown's death and the Ferguson uprising that sparked a movement, we can see how Hughes' words still ring true today.

Students Can Now Easily Enroll Online to Black Colleges and Universities - Thanks to This New Web Site! was launched to increase enrollment at historically black colleges and universities and facilitate
a smooth transition from high school to an HBCU. The website provides a wealth of information on financial aid, SAT/ACT prep information, essay writing, internships, the college admissions process and other necessary resources.

The website was founded by Barry Roberson Jr. and Samuel Sims Jr. who both have an undying passion for HBCUs. Roberson Jr. said: “We are aiming to be an online guidance counselor for high school students. We do understand how challenging the college admissions process is; so we created this platform to help reduce the stress on students through the provision of useful resources about HBCUs.”

Choosing the right institution can be a challenge in itself. Nevertheless, the website provides further help to students by narrowing down their choices by matching them with an HBCU of their choice. All that is required of the student is to register on the website, which may result not only in them being contacted by one of the institutions, but they will automatically be entered for a chance to win a scholarship.

The college admissions process doesn’t have to be a stressful event and HBCU Bound is seeing to that. For further information or to sign up on the website, visit
