Heavy police activity was seen at JSU, Tougaloo College, Alcorn State and Mississippi Valley State University Tuesday morning after calls of a bomb threat at each campus.

Calls were made Tuesday morning at other HBCU’s across the nation including Howard, Morgan State University, Edward Waters University and the University of the District of Columbia.

This comes one day after six historically black colleges and universities, including Howard, Bowie State, Bethune-Cookman, Southern, Delaware State and Albany State University, received bomb threats.

“Very unsettling, very disturbing to have our students subjected to this. We’re in the second week of classes, and I do hope that the individual is found. I want to assure the parents and families who are watching that we have responded quickly,” said Aminta Breaux, president of Bowie State University.

This is the third time several HBCU’s have received bomb threats. The first time was on Jan. 4.

More updates pending.
