NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders plans to bring his "Feel the Bern" tour of historically black colleges to Tennessee State University in Nashville.

The Democratic presidential candidate's campaign announced that TSU would be on the eight-stop tour that starts in South Carolina on Thursday. No date has yet been released for the Tennessee stop.

The other stops on the Sanders tour include Alabama State University, Jackson State University, Florida A&M University, Virginia State University, Howard University, the Atlanta University Center and Benedict College.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also made historically black colleges a focus of her recent Tennessee visit. She held rallies in November at Fisk University in Nashville and LeMoyne-Owen College in Memphis.
