Former President Barack Obama did much for the nation during his back-to-back terms as President of the United States. One of our favorite things from the now 58-year-old visionary, was his love for historically Black colleges and universities.

From speaking at commencements, to showing up randomly for basketball games, Obama and his phenomenal women of a wife, the revolutionary Michelle Obama, were no stranger to the campuses of HBCU around the country.
