Atlanta and Houston would likely come out on top if your going by HBCU students living in metro areas. In terms of HBCU alumni, ATL is #1 and DFW is #2.

LOL, Prairie View A&M was originally called "Alta Vista Agriculture & Mechanical College for Colored Youth" LMAO.

TSU was even worse- "Texas State University for Negroes" or the "Houston Colored Junior College"

FAMU ... in Tallahassee FL ... same place as FSU

Actually a nice town, it is full of pines, it is hilly (unlike most of Florida) and you can day-hop it to the Gulf/Panhandle beaches.
