13 HBCUs Receive Bomb Threats On The 1st Day Of Black History Month

Howard University - HBCUs receive bomb threats

I am extremely disheartened to report 13 historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have been forced to postpone classes or lockdown due to bomb threats. 

Multiple universities received threats on Monday and on Tuesday, the first day of Black History Month, at least 13 HBCUs have received threats.

Coppin State University

Mississippi Valley State University

The university said a bomb threat was received through its guardhouse early Tuesday morning.

Morgan State University

Alcorn State University

Tougaloo College

The college in Tougaloo, Mississippi, also received a bomb threat, according to a message on its website.

Jackson State University

Kentucky State University

Fort Valley State University

Howard University

Xavier University

University of the District of Columbia

Spelman College

The college in Atlanta received a bomb threat overnight, CNN affiliate WGCL reported.

Atlanta police responded to Spelman around 3 a.m. Tuesday and an investigation was launched, WGCL reported. Atlanta police have since turned the case back over to campus police.

Edward Waters University

I pray the person(s) responsible for threatening the safety and invoking fear in the students and staff at these historically Black colleges and universities are caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
