Astonishing statistic of the day

This is from the Washington Post:

Remarkably, 96 percent of black tenured faculty are at HBCUs* (even though HBCUs comprise only 3 percent of the nation’s 3000 colleges and universities). If HBCUs disappeared, so would most of the nation’s black academics.

I don’t have any rejoinder. Just found the stat rather surprising. Is this really true?

*Historically Black Colleges and Universities
