BLACK SOUTHERN BELLE ANNOUNCES SERIES TO CELEBRATE HBCU TAILGATE CULTURE

BLACK SOUTHERN BELLE ANNOUNCES SERIES TO CELEBRATE HBCU TAILGATE CULTURE

WALTERBORO, SC Black Southern Belle (BSB) announces a new series celebrating HBCU Tailgate Culture focused on at-home entertaining, cuisines, and decorations. The series will be released this Autumn through the BSB website, social channels, and newsletter with a three-part video series.  

“As a proud Howard University alumnus, I love everything about HBCUs. From traditions to tailgating, being an HBCU alumnus is a lifestyle,” shares Michiel Perry, founder of Black Southern Belle. “Tailgating is an opportunity for communities to come together and celebrate festivities with HBCU pride, educational excellence, food, and athletics, whether you are celebrating at a college or in your home.” 

Michiel Perry takes you inside her historic Walterboro, SC home to explore how she entertains during the tailgating season. Guest chefs Rashaunda Grant of The Carolina Cookery and Gina Capers Willis of What’s Gina Cooking will share dishes and ingredients inspired by their cultural roots and HBCUs. Beginning October 1st, BSB will share a video dedicated to each woman that will explore their history and experience with HBCUs and how they have shaped their lives, careers, and cultural cuisines. 

  • Part 1: Gina Capers Willis of What’s Gina Cooking – Gina Willis offers a taste of her “New Low Country” cooking style through her upscale tailgate cuisine, a blend of her Gullah and Cuban roots. 
  • Part 2: Rashaunda Grant of The Carolina Cookery – Florida A&M University alumnus Rashaunda Grant cooks a bevy of delicious tailgating bites inspired by various HBCUs.
  • Part 3: HBCU Tailgate Season with Michiel Perry – Michiel Perry shares her family history with HBCUs along with tailgating essentials for celebrating at home. 

The series is intended to inspire and increase recognition for HBCU Tailgate Culture and its importance to the colleges, communities, and people the tradition has enriched and will expand on Black Southern Belle’s HBCU Inspiration editorial vertical.
