In 2011, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, a non-profit offering support to public Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), revealed that nearly 18% of students at the nation’s 105 HBCUs identify as non-black; and at some institutions, black students no longer represent the majority.

Historically Black is a short film that offers a glimpse into the recruitment efforts of Texas Southern University, an HBCU in Houston that has begun to set its sights on attracting non-black students. By telling the story of a school where ethnic diversity has become the vogue, the film seeks to explore the changing role of HBCUs in a post-segregated America and the cultural implications of this demographic shift.
