At least eight historically Black colleges, including Howard University in Washington and Spelman College in Atlanta, received bomb threats on Tuesday, prompting investigations by local police and the FBI.

Though authorities said they found no bombs, some students said they were still on edge, while others said they were not on campus at the time because of winter break.
