Homecoming season for us is truly incomparable! And this year’s homecoming experience is already iconic.
From seeing social media posts of HBCU alum reuniting, to seeing the marching bands, majorettes, and some of the performances by some of our favorite artists, our hearts are singing with joy!
Here are some of our favorite moments from the 2022 HBCU Homecoming season!

As she was getting into the groove, you can hear the crowd cheering “Go, Stacey! Go, Stacey! Go, Stacey!” while holding up Stacey Abrams signs.
Later that night, Abrams took the stage with rapper Latto, and spread the vital message to students and alum to get out and vote on November 4th.
