In an effort to court minority voters, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign is launching a tour — officially dubbed “Feel the Bern” — of historically black colleges and universities. On the docket Thursday night: South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, S.C.

South Carolina and Nevada are holding their primaries in February, and are next up after the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary.

Stops on the tour include Tennessee State University in Nashville; Alabama State University in Montgomery; Jackson State University; Florida A&M University in Tallahassee; Virginia State University in Petersburg; Howard University in Washington, D.C.; the Atlanta University Center; and Benedict College in Columbia, S.C.

  1. Southern Univeristy A&M College is not on the list. Hmm wonder if Hilary is coming like he husband did in 93′. The question is to both Democratic candidates what are you going to do to bridge the gap financially between HBCUs and PWIs. And no empty promises either.
