HBCU to Buckdance for Trump

05 Jan

Never heard of this school or even seen it on a list of HBCUs, Looked it up and it ranked 72nd out of 77 HBCUs in the country, with an enrollment of 750 students. And has an overall “D+” rating from at least one site. And it isn’t even listed on the US News and World Report list of Colleges and Universities.

It does apparently have a band…

Regardless – I am sure the School President is going to catch hell for this decision.

The school is known by its collection of  Hale Woodruff murials…So it is kind od hard to justify that with providing any support whatsoever to the Chumph.

Historically black college: Band will march at inauguration

The president of a historically black college in Alabama says its band will perform in President-elect Donald Trump’s inaugural parade, despite a barrage of criticism.

Talladega College President Billy Hawkins announced the decision Thursday. It comes after the Presidential Inaugural Committee had announced that the Alabama band had accepted its invitation to march in the Jan. 20 parade.

The announcement followed several days of intense debate on social media. Some people voiced strong opposition, while others said it would be a good opportunity to perform in the parade.

Talladega bills itself as Alabama’s oldest private, historically black liberal arts college.

The college was founded in 1867.
