If you are in or around Atlanta you are well aware of the buzz of excitement surrounding the city today! It’s time for some FOOTBALL!!! Fans, alumni, and tailgaters alike from all over are converging on the city for the 25th Anniversary of the Atlanta Football Classic. Presented by 100 Black Men of Atlanta, this annual sold-out event is one of the nation’s largest Black college football games. But the Classic is far more than just a game between two fine Black colleges. It’s an HBCU and an Atlanta tradition! The event is also 100 Black Men of Atlanta’s largest fundraiser for its mentoring, academic support and scholarship program, Project Success. And speaking of which, Walmart will be presenting a donation to this wonderful program during the halftime show. Also surrounding the Big Game are a host of interactive events such as a Robotics Showcase, health and wellness screenings, a Fan Experience which attracts over 12,000 attendees, a fabulous parade, a host of exhibits and workshops, and much much more.
Now, what would a classic football game be without a little BIG rivalry, right? Well, this year’s matchup is no exception, as the North Carolina A&T University Aggies take on the South Carolina State University Bulldogs in a gridiron battle for bragging rights as “The Carolina’s BEST!” Oh, and if that aint enough action for ya, each schools marching band will meet at center field during halftime show for an epic battle of drum majors, marching, and music. I cannot wait!!!
This event promises to be one you don’t want to miss so I’m gonna bring you all of the action LIVE from the field! That’s right!!! I will be on the field capturing all of the excitement on Instagram and Twitter and posting all of the fun below so stay tuned!!!
