This weekend I had the pleasure of going to visit my baby boy in college at KSU (Kentucky State University). Some may and some may not know that KSU is an HBCU (Historically Black College University), that in itself makes me proud that he is a part.
This weekend was his first home coming game, oh yeah, he is a part of the Marching Thorobreds at KSU, the marching band is and has been a huge part of his life since he was exposed to the hard work and excitement of it all when he was a small child.
This weekend also celebrated the schools 125th Anniversary and there were a lot of Alumni students that came back to participate in all of the festivities. These people made my heart truly smile.
I mean there were fraternities and sorrorities there and they were some really down to earth, nice people. I said that because I’ve always gotten the impression that the frats, and sorrors are people that have an attitude or air of “arrogancy” about them.
The current students and Alumni came together and really put on a show. I mean there was singing, dancing, chanting, crying, etc. the students showed such pride in the school and even in the fact that they were able to come together again in one place.
I am happy to say that I’m glad that my son is the individual that he has strived to be all of his life, like no other, and that he is persuing his college dreams. More importantly I’m glad that he is a part of an institution that prides itself on being a HBCU and my boy gets to be a part of it all….AND I’M PROUD ABOUT IT!
