The annual rankings of Historical Black Colleges and Universities by U.S. News and World Report has been released.  Spelman and Morehouse College find themselves at the top of the list when it comes to the country's HBCUs.  North Carolina A&T University now sits as the top ranked public HBCU barely edging out Florida A&M University and Delaware State University which found themselves in a three-way tie for the ninth ranked HBCU [Clark Atlanta University was the third school].

Here's how U.S. News and World Report explained their rankings:

These historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) were compared only with one another for these rankings. In order to be on the list, a school must be designated currently by the U.S. Department of Education as an HBCU. To qualify for the U.S. News ranking, an HBCU also must be an undergraduate baccalaureate-granting institution that enrolls primarily first year, first-time students and must be a school that is currently part of the 2014 Best Colleges rankings.
