I Did Not Know it Was Homecoming: Howard University

I normally wander onto campus, attend my event, perhaps have a meeting or two. There is rarely fanfare or crowds.

Then there was Howard.

I stood out quite a bit when I visited Wellesley, I stuck out even more at Howard. No one cared, not even the checker when I purchased a Howard Alumni pennant. She smiled and took my money.

Howard University

Every news watching American should attend homecoming at an HBCU. There were thousands of people there of all ages and I did not see one stabbing, shooting, gang sign, or even any public sex. This was nothing like the Black world normally seen on TV.

I was there looking for S.T.E.M. students. They have them there. They also had a block party that I was not looking for but still took advantage of.
