Game on! Chicago Football Classic

I'm delighted to be headed to Soldier Field today for the Chicago Football Classic for a number of reasons. First, the Classic encourages students to attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Second, today's game features the Hampton Pirates vs. the Howard Bison in an age-old rivalry. Hampton, in Hampton, Virginia, and Howard, in Washington, are two of the colleges that are considered part of the “Black Ivy League.” U.S. News & World Report listed the two universities as two of the top four HBCUs, along with Spelman in Atlanta and Xavier University in New Orleans. Are you attending? If so, show off those photos! #ChicagoFootballClassic
