SPC Participates in First-Ever National HBCU Virtual Homecoming Celebration
October 15, 2020
To foster black college pride and to keep alive the Homecoming spirit inhibited by event cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National HBCU Virtual Homecoming 2020 has been organized by HBCUNation.org and will launch its spirited run from October 1-31.
The students, faculty and staff of St. Philip’s College are joining forces with thousands of others from the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to celebrate the importance of and successes of the more than 100 institutions of higher education.
Several HBCUs will be featured each week in October. SPC will be highlighted on the third week of the month (October 15-October 18) with 18 other HBCUs and several HBCU-affiliated entities, including HBCU Sirius XM 142, HBCU Pride Nation and others. The virtual celebration will air exclusively on the HBCU Nation’s Digital Media properties HBCU Smart TV and its sister station, HBCUiRadio during the entire month of October. Gates open every Thursday at 3 p.m. eastern to jump off weekly Homecoming tailgating parties. Special fun-filled events are scheduled each weekend, wrapping up with “Let’s Go to Church” and a Gospel concert each Sunday. The celebration concludes on November 3, 2020 with Senator Kamala Harris at Howard University.
