2017 Homecoming Weekend is HELLA LIT! The HBCUs are turning ALL the way to celebrate this weekend. It’s one of the bigger Homecoming weekends as several HBCUs are celebrating - Howard University, Hampton University, Spelman & Morehouse College (SpelHouse), Clark Atlanta University, Tuskegee University and Fayetteville State University.

Yesterday, Howard University was on FIRE as they celebrated their annual Yardfest with Grand Marshall LaLa Anthony. The “Power” star snapped it up above with Harvard & HU graduate/plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Boyd during the festivities. 

Everyone was out on the yard for the celebration, even the police joined in to Swag & Surf while Doug E. Fresh was on stage.

Peep the clip below:

Sweet! Congrats to the couple.

Jada Pinkett Smith was honored at the HBCU Power Awards held at MLK Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College. The Hollywood veteran kept it chic in an all white ensemble with gold sandals.

She's likely secured her a spot on the next season of "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.

Now...here's where all the fun is.

The Sigmas were also holding it down on the yard at Morehouse Homecoming.



This soon-to-be mom had to come back and show out one time with the baby bump. She's 9-months pregnant and still killing it. Peep the clip above.

Kill it then.


Wait for it..... - Homecoming @tuskegeeuniversity the "Skegee way" #hbcu #tuskegeeuniversity #homecoming #hbcuhub

This is how they were turning up at Tuskegee University.


21 Savage hit the stage to perform at Clark Atlanta University. Hmm...maybe this is where Amber Rose and Bash were jetting to the other day ahead of her birthday. 


Because the dance teams are arguably one of the best parts of homecoming games, the ladies at HBCUs are setting ish off with Procter & Gamble.  The Tampax and Always Radiant Collection and HBCU Dance Corporation, Inc. have teamed up to host #RadiantDanceOff, a national, online dance competition sponsored by HBCU Dance exclusively for majorette teams at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

It was created to give majorettes the chance to show off their moves and demonstrate how confidence is the key to feeling radiant any day of the month.


A post shared by Morehouse College (@morehouse1867) on

The winning majorette team will receive new costumes designed by Brea Stinson, a Clark Atlanta University alumna and highly sought-after celebrity costume and fashion designer. The school of the winning team will also receive $25,000 to benefit the dance team.

Loves it!
