At Black Southern Belle, we love tailgating! Many of us are HBCU Fans or HBCU Alums, including Michiel Perry, a very proud Howard alumnus. Tailgate parties are traditional during football games, classic events, homecoming, and even at home. They are a great way to gather with friends, family, and other alumni members as fun mini-reunions to celebrate HBCU culture. If you are looking for that perfect HBCU host gift, reunion present, or holiday gift, we have the essential HBCU tailgate gift ideas and even few tips for a touchdown party.
Share your tailgate photos using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle And Happy Tailgate Season!
