Being part of an HBCU community is like being with your extended family in a second home. BCSBN strives to bring the sights and sounds of HBCU colleges through broadcasting CIAA games to our viewers and help the world to see who we are and show them that there are events and activities that are more than just athletics.
Fans know that events are more important than the game itself and they show up to support the step shows, Battle of the Bands, the food, tailgating, and the school pride that comes through.
Bands are notorious for stepping up and stepping out during the 20 minute half-time shows where people don’t dare leave their seats to get refreshments until it’s over. The music is highly anticipated and the bands never disappoint.
For a fan, whether a student, alumni, faculty, or family, there’s no other experience like an HBCU homecoming week – it’s like a family reunion that brings with it a full week of events including, step shows with intricate dances, stomps, and electrifying movements. Sororities and fraternities help bring the excitement through events and pep rallies to show that love for players, bands, drumlines, and cheerleaders.
Averaging 250 members or more, the marching bands represent their respective schools and battle it out on the field, showing off the best moves, drumlines, the best tunes, and demonstrating who can bring the house down. All who are involved give a show that’s not to be believed when first seen. They are crowd-pleasers and their performance mind-boggling.
As a fan you know you are part of something much bigger than an event, and we support your school pride through the work we do broadcasting HBCU athletics to show the world the true colors of the experience.
