Beginning of October 11, 2018 Update…
It would be great if I had an update to share about the Windsor-Spence U.S. Supreme Court Cases that are being held hostage in the U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Circuit under Case No. 18-1790, but unfortunately I do not.
Instead, I’d like to take this down time to shed light on a cultural phenomena in the African American Descendants of Slaves Community, HBCU Band Life by sharing a few 2018 Video Clips from the past three weeks along with a Fireside Chat that resulted from open and honest communication among friends (Thanks J.F.H.). It is my hope that the sharing and / or willingness to have the tough, open and honest Fireside Conversations will spread and continue as we each individually and collectively embark on transforming this nation into the Better America that we all Envision right now, for our children and for our children’s – children!!!
Okay, so let’s get started and please note that the following HBCU bands have been alphabetized by their original year of founding, not ranking. Here’s one of many polls / articles designed to rank HBCU Band Performances…
Feel free to look up articles and polls related to HBCU Band Performances on your own. LOL… again, the bands showcased below are in no particular order. They also represent HBCU Bands from five different States.
You may catch a glimpse of HBCU Band Life “on the yard”, on campus promenades and in stadiums, gymnasiums, etc. throughout the month of October and November.
Tying in the central message / theme of my very last public post (September 29, 2018), which mentions that African American Descendant’s of Slaves communicate and / or speak with the use of Terms, let’s take a closer look at this first HBCU Band’s performance.
Without further ado, Clark Atlanta University (Georgia – Atlanta University 1865 / Clark College 1869, Consolidated as Clark Atlanta University 1988), with their timely and extremely profound musical rendition of… “Don’t Start No Stuff – Won’t be No Stuff”.
Video Time Lapse: 5:06, 5:26 and 5:46.
Stillman College (Alabama – 1875)
Southern University (Louisiana 1880)
Bethune-Cookman University (Florida – Bethune- Cookman College 1904, renamed Bethune Cookman University 2007)
North Carolina Central University (North Carolina -1910)
I hope that you enjoyed seeing the above HBCU Band Life Video Clips as much as I did. Happy Homecoming!!!
