Historically Black College and University Students’ Views of Free Expression on Campus

Follows up on April 2016 report on U.S. college students’ views of First Amendment rights. The Knight Foundation and the Newseum Institute partnered with Gallup to conduct a survey of students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). For this study, Gallup conducted telephone interviews with 302 full-time students at HBCUs, 93% of whom identified their race as black or African-American. Throughout this report, HBCU students’ opinions are compared with those of a national sample of 3,072 college students (including HBCU students) and, from that larger national sample, 357 black students at non-HBCU colleges.
