This past week more than 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States celebrated their homecomings. Alumni made the pilgrimage to their respective schools to eat, drink and be merry with other alumni and students. Among them was Alcorn State University.
The school held events such as an art show and a coronation for the 93rd Miss Alcorn State University during the week, but the fun hasn’t ended yet.
The celebration continues on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 5 p.m. in the Vicksburg Convention Center (1600 Dr. Briggs Hopson Blvd.) with a Homecoming Gospel Explosion to finish the week off right.
“This event is being put on by Marcus Ward at Alcorn, and they’re expecting about 400 people,” said Elyce Curry, VCC sales manager. “It’s just kind of an after homecoming event.”
Gospel artists such as Brian Courtney Wilson, Vanessa Bell Armstrong and Benjamin Cone III will be featured.
This free event is open to all, and doors open at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
“It’s on a Sunday evening, and I would definitely recommend that people come out,” Curry said. “They can listen to some wonderful gospel artists in a great and safe environment. I just think it’s going to be a great event for Alcorn State, the Convention Center and the community.”
