The HBCU Podcast is looking for contributing writers. We have a bustling podcast audience that wants to know more about our HBCUs, and our alumni guests. We are also looking to share more stories about HBCU Culture. Interested? • It’s important to note that writers for TheHBCUPodcast.com work on a voluntary basis, but there are perks. Writers must be HBCU grads or current students. See below.
HBCU Culture is more than a performance by Beyoncé at Cochella…although that was lit. Our readers are intelligent, politically active, entrepreneurial, fashion-forward and philanthropic.
We want to hear your stories, essays, top 5 lists, hot topics and breaking news related to the HBCU Community. Topics we love: Achievements by HBCU students and alumni, career advice, post-college transition, breaking HBCU news and opinions that can somehow tie into our community.
