  • 4 Fathers Share Memories of Daughters Attending HBCUs
    Father’s Day, which is just a few days away, is a holiday for the paternal figures in our lives. Father’s are necessary in our lives because they make a difference to our upbringing, teach us lessons through action, and serve as a representation of who we will be like when we grow up. Oftentimes when many people think about fathers the bond between their Southern Belle or junior Southern Beau is what they are known for, which is what we want to feature today on Black Southern Belle. Bonds between…

  • HBCU Pageantry: Tuskegee University Coronation Ball with Southern Charm
    For Brittney Jones-Dabney, she’s had the opportunity to experience both sides of the crown, wearing the crown as Miss Alabama A&M University 2010-2011 and guiding those selected during their reign as a Royal Court Advisor. She says she truly believes that being in the role of an Advisor is a special calling. Many are called, but few are chosen, this is what I find myself saying each year to the newly elected Royal Court. “I’ve had the opportunity to advise quite a few courts including Miss Alabama State University and…

  • HBCU Travel: Voorhees College Museum
    Voorhees College Historical Museum  Historically Black Colleges and Universities were built to provide higher education for African Americans. These institutions ensured that there is a place to not only grow while feeling inclusive but also to become a piece of history that can’t be erased. As an HBCU alum of Voorhees College, I have learned much of what it took for Voorhees College to become the great institution in which it is today. I have also met and learned about individuals who have mastered much more after Voorhees College and…
  • HBCU Queen Heritage: Memories from Miss Voorhees College
    Being a Queen is far much more than royal elegance and queenly attire. Being a Queen requires true dedication to your Queenly duties and is ready to serve. Despite the image that is naturally painted about Queens getting ready for their crowning ceremony, HBCU Queens are naturally prepared because of characteristics that led them to become their HBCU Queen. Many HBCU Queens desired the destination of queendom from the start, while other Queens, like myself, couldn’t have imagined serving in such a royal role.  2017-2018 Miss Voorhees College  As a…

  • HBCU Heritage: Reflections of an HBCU Queen
    Growing up my mom would get so excited during her college homecoming. I was especially excited for the homecoming parade. The marching bands could be heard miles away with cheers from the onlookers, floats would be decorated beautifully with candy flying mid air. Personally, I would be excited to see the campus queens! The crowns, the gowns and the regalness! Miss South Carolina State University would sparkle while perched at the top of her float. She would always give a gracious smile and graceful wave as she drove by. I…

  • HBCU Food: How to Prepare a Tailgate Menu with Tips from a Charleston,SC Native
    As soon as you arrive at your HBCU or favorite tailgating institution,  you prepare yourself to enjoy all festivities. Instead of bringing cash for lunch off-campus, you ensure that you wear your walking shoes to stop and stand in every tailgating line for lunch. Instead of bringing along your jacket in case it rains, you are more prepared with your decked-out canister or basket or cooler filled with your personal tailgate favorites.  Now, alums of their prestigious institution are doing the same. Cheering, eating, laughing, and friendly trash-talking have been…
