Located in Hampton, Virginia, Hampton University is a private Historically Black university that was founded in 1868 by both black and white leaders of the American Missionary Association to provide education to freedmen after the American Civil War ended.
Among one of the school’s first students was Booker T. Washington, who went on to establish Tuskegee University later in his accomplished and storied life.
