A number of historically Black colleges and universities, or HBCUs, across the country went into lockdown and cancelled classes Monday after receiving bomb threats. By early afternoon ET, most of them had issued all-clears and lifted lockdown orders.

At least six HBCUs – Albany State University, Bethune-Cookman University, Bowie State University, Delaware State University, Howard University and Southern University and A&M College – received threats, according to spokespeople, statements and social media posts
