Break out the rubies and pearls. It’s homecoming season!

Graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Institutions will rush home to their alma maters to enjoy the festivities, where being unapologetically Black is the norm.

The traditional pep rallies and tailgating sessions are a staple of these affairs, but they have also evolved to include black tie galas, panels, comedy shows and of course, step shows.

See what this year’s crop of homecoming celebrations has in store for you this month below!
