For HBCU graduates across New York City, there’s two homecomings every year: one at your alma mater and the HBCU Springcoming. 

For the last three years, curators have put together a special homecoming for HBCU graduates to network, mingle and for many, reunite! 

During this year’s third annual event, college graduates swarmed the Riverside Park in Harlem, New York to celebrate the culture with tailgates full of sororities and fraternities, food, paraphernalia and a LIVE DJ. 

Alumni from historically Black colleges/universities like Howard University, Florida A&M University and South Carolina State University were all in attendance. While the majority of attendees are HBCU graduates, co-founders George Twopointoh of Listen Two Me, LLC, and Lauren Grant of The Grant Access say that nearly 30 percent of the people that attend have not attended an HBCU.
