Wilberforce is the site of Wilberforce and Central State Universities. These are among the outstanding predominately and historically African-American institutions of higher learning in the United States.

Wilberforce is also the location of an outstanding museum of African-American history. "NOTED NOTABLES"
Colonel Charles Young was a prominent figure in the history of African-Americans in the US military. At the time of the First World War, Colonel Young rode from his home in Wilberforce to Washington, DC to convince the War Department of his fitness for duty. This gallant effort did not earn him the assignment he sought. The persistence of many African-American officers to follow ultimately led the significant roles that many African-American officers play in the present US military.
