The Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame is proud to debut a brand-new permanent exhibit on Juneteenth, that celebrates all aspects of HBCUs and their impact past, present and future. “The Southern Company Celebrating HBCUs” exhibit focuses on three pillars inherent in the HBCU culture – Community, Leadership and Opportunity and uses historical artifacts and interactive video to tell these stories. From Marching Bands, Homecoming, Historic Rivalries and Classics to individual Players, Coaches, and testimonials from Community Leaders, the Southern Company Celebrating HBCUs exhibit provides a comprehensive look into how all come together within these renowned institutions.
“As the storytellers of college football’s rich history, the College Football Hall of Fame is honored to share the incredible contributions HBCUs have made across the country. The rich traditions of these schools are entrenched in the game today and we are excited to put them to the forefront for all to see,” said Kimberly Beaudin, CEO of the Hall. “We couldn’t be more thankful for our new partnership with Southern Company and their dedication to bringing this exhibit to life. We can’t wait for guests to experience this unique celebration of HBCUs.”
