The Effect of Attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities on Future Wages of Black Students.
Constantine, Jill M.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v48 n3 p531-46 Apr 1995
Data on 1,192 students from the National Longitudinal Survey-High School Class of 1972 showed that, although the precollege characteristics of black students who attended historically black colleges/universities (HBCUs) predicted lower wages, the value added to future wages from HBCU attendance was 38% higher than that from attending traditionally white or mixed institutions.
